Air France is continuing to expand its Caribbean Regional Network that links overseas French territories, to facilitate travel and exchanges between the countries’ inhabitants. Two Air France Airbus A320s based in Pointe-à-Pitre fly year round between Pointe-à-Pitre, Fort-de-France, Cayenne and Miami, for up to 23 weekly flights.

The flight will be on an Airbus A320 with a capacity of 168 seats (12 in Business, 156 in Economy) and equipped with Wi-Fi.

Belém, the city of mango trees
Capital city of the state of Pará, Belém is strategically located at the mouth of the Amazon and near the Atlantic Ocean. It is the second most populous city in northern Brazil and is renowned for its mango trees and the Mercado Ver-o-Peso, one of the largest open-air markets in Latin America since 1625. Large 19th century villas dating back to Brazil’s Belle Époque and rubber boom give the city its unique charm.
