AIR TRANSPORT: Air Antilles finally obtains its CTA


Air Antilles obtained its Air Transport Certificate (CTA) on May 23, marking a significant turning point for the Antilles regional airline.

With this certificate, Air Antilles will connect Martinique, Saint-Barthélemy, Saint-Martin and Guadeloupe thanks to a fleet of four aircraft (3 ATRs and 1 Twin Otter). Ticket sales will soon begin online, at points of sale and approved agencies, with a promotional offer to celebrate this new momentum. After challenges and liquidation in August 2023, the company overcame obstacles thanks to the support of its shareholders, the Collectivity of Saint Martin and the Edeis group, while modernizing its aircraft and the reservation system. The CTA, issued by state bodies, confirms Air Antilles' commitment to aviation safety and strengthens its position in regional transport. This public-private partnership aims to improve the connectivity of the islands and open up local populations. Air Antilles thanks the authorities and its partners for their support and promises quality air services, contributing to the economic and tourist development of the Antilles.
