Martinique Celebrates Launch of Air Canada Direct Flight at Toronto-Pearson

The Martinique Tourism Authority (MTA) marked the debut of the first non-stop flight from Toronto to Martinique with a gate party at Toronto-Pearson International Airport (YYZ). The Martinican Tourism Commissioner, Bénédicte di Géronimo, was joined at Terminal 1 by other delegates from the Caribbean destination and Air Canada representatives.

"This new route, more than an air connection, opens doors to new opportunities, strengthening our commitment to elevate Martinique to the top of must-visit Caribbean tourist destinations," said di Géronimo in her remarks. "As of today, Martinique has officially become more accessible to Canadians than ever with up to 6 weekly flights from Canada, among others. What an amazing journey! I would like here to thank especially Air Canada for their unwavering cooperation and support."

First announced in APR of this year, the new route links Toronto (YYZ) and Martinique's capital of Fort-de-France via the Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport (FDF). The route builds on Air Canada's existing direct service from Montreal.

According to Air Canada, "Toronto passengers will now enjoy the comfort of a non-stop, 5-hour flight aboard an Airbus B737 MAX, with a capacity of 169 passengers, 16 Business Class seats (2X2) and 153 Economy Class seats (3X3). Every seat has complimentary personal inflight entertainment."

In remarks made earlier this year, di Géronimo confirmed Canada's growing importance as a "key market," noting that it has become Martinique's second-largest source of tourism arrivals.

"Again, I want to express my deep gratitude to Air Canada represented here and today by Audrey Tanguay Beaudette," said di Géronimo. "Our gratitude also goes to you, our first passengers and travellers who seized this opportunity to discover our magnificent, welcoming and authentic island. Martinique loves you!”
