Martinique: Your budget French Connection via Norwegian Air

Looking for a low-cost warm weather getaway?  European carrier Norwegian Air launched its first-ever flights to Martinique in the French Caribbean.

Currently, 93% of visitors to Martinique come from France. The award-winning European budget airline hopes to change that with three direct flights a week to Martinique from New York’s JFK, departing on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, at 1:20 pm and returning at 8:05 am. This five-hour flight starts at $49.00 US one way to a current high of $129.00 throughout the winter.

Other direct flights to Martinique originate in Baltimore/Washington and Boston. Long haul direct service from Los Angeles to Europe is also available.  Martinique is also connected to St.  Lucia, Dominica and Guadalupe islands by ferry.

  1. Wow – are those flight prices real? I’m going to look into this ASAP – thanks for the scoop!

  2. Wow, those are terrific prices! Between Norwegian air and the ferries, it sounds like a great way to island-hop around the French Caribbean.

    1. Thanks, Air Transat offers direct flights from Montreal too but at higher rates.
