Air Caraïbes: the third Airbus A350 is now in service!


The airline Air Caraïbes took possession of its third Airbus A350-900, which entered service last Friday between Paris and Guadeloupe. Its A350s will soon fly to Guyana, the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

The new A350-900 of the Antillean company (MSN327 registered F-HTRE) was delivered to it on July 25, 2019, the aircraft leaving Toulouse to join Paris-Orly where it was deployed this Friday to its base at the airport of Pointe-à-Pitre - Guadeloupe Caribbean Pole. Leased from ALC, it is configured as the first two to accommodate 18 passengers in Business class, 45 in Premium and 326 in Economy (389 seats). With the arrival of this new wide-body aircraft, Air Caraïbes "demonstrates its dynamism and its ambition: that of offering a quality fleet to its customers and to its crews", underlines its press release which recalls that three new destinations will now be served by A350 -900:

  Guyana : Air Caraïbes will be the 1st airline to serve Guyana by A350-900 from July 29, 2019 and will also launch a 6th weekly frequency as of December 20, 2019.

  The Dominican Republic : Air Caraïbes will also be the only airline to serve by A350-900 Punta Cana from September 14, 2019 and Santo Domingo from December 15, 2019.

  Haiti: the transatlantic line Paris - Port-au-Prince will celebrate its 10 years this year, with a service carried out in A350-900 from December 15, 2019.

The arrival of this third A350-900 comes “to consolidate the transatlantic fleet” made up to date of nine large aircraft: four A330-300, two A330-200 and therefore three A350-900. At the end of 2019, Air Caraïbes will have a transatlantic and regional fleet of 13 aircraft, including the first of three A350-1000 (24 + 45 + 360) which should enter service in December and for which it will be the launch company in France (all as for the A350-900). A third new ATR 3-72 will also be added to serve the company's regional network by the end of the year.
