Saint Lucia Expands Travel Options From France

Saint Lucia has exciting news for European and French travelers, with the introduction of an enhanced service from Air Caraïbes called NavigAir.
This development follows the recent launch of Air Caraïbes flight TX510 from France to Fort-de-France, which connects to Saint Lucia through L’Express des Iles.
The flight from Orly, Paris to Martinique, the shuttle service from the airport to the seaport in Martinique, and the ferry service onto Saint Lucia on L’Express Des Isles, are all included in one price, with visitors arriving in Saint Lucia on the same day.
The expanded route is designed to streamline travel for visitors between the French regions and Saint Lucia.
This new service is available on Thursdays and Sundays. The Thursday flight (TX511) departs from Orly at 12:00 noon and arrives in Fort de France (FDF), Martinique at 3:55 pm. The ferry service departs from FDF at 10:15 pm and arrives at the Castries Ferry Terminal at 11:45 pm.
The Sunday flight departs Orly the same as on a Thursday, but the ferry service departs from Martinique at 7:15 pm, arriving in Saint Lucia at 8:45 pm.
NavigAir is also available from Paris to St. Martin, Dominica, and Guadeloupe, with onward connections to Saint Lucia via Express des Iles.
The return service from Saint Lucia to Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe, with onward connections to Paris, is available Saturdays to Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
“This development not only enriches the visitor experience but also bolsters our economy. With increased connectivity, more people can now partake in the vibrant festivities, cultural events, and festivals that make Saint Lucia a truly unique destination.
This growth reflects our commitment to providing accessibility and fostering a deeper connection with our beautiful island, ensuring that the wonders of Saint Lucia are within reach for everyone”, remarked Hon. Dr. Ernest Hilaire, Minister for Tourism, Investment, Creative Industries, Culture & Information.
For further information and booking details, travelers are encouraged to contact Air Caraïbes.

  1. A drowning man will catch on to a straw – anything for the Tourist $$$$

    Hilaire, I hope you ask them to improve customer service on L’Express des Iles. The workers have no sense of customer service, no respect.

  2. Personally it should be flights all the way . Not everyone can take this sea travel. So that’s not really an option as far as I can see. A 10 minute flight to at Lucia from Martinique sound far better than u all boat ride

  3. Did that trip four years ago. It was very affordable and comfortable. Nice to see it being offered as a package now.

  4. There is no postal service between Saint Lucia and France. When will that situation be corrected?
    It has been years.

  5. Just add a connection on air cariabe or liat to St Lucia on the main France flight. That will attract a lot more people. The UK is treating Caribbean people with disdain in their country. endless hassle they give Caribbean immigrants. Time to teach them a lesson. They don’t take our bananas. We barely export anything to them but their airlines make millions coming here. So they benefit from the Caribbean more than we benefit from them. Yet their policies towards us are terrible. Make France a main point of departure for European tourists and connect to St Lucia by air instead. Advertise it as a 10 minute flight to St lucia. Which it is. UK we not gonna eff around. That’s just the start.
