Air France will have one more destination in Brazil, Belém do Pará, in the Amazon region. However, this is an unusual route as it will depart from Cayenne, in French Guiana and not Paris, like its other flights.
The French airline has decided to expand what it calls the “Caribbean Regional Network”, which links France’s overseas territories.
Currently, two Airbus A320s fly from Pointe-à-Pitre, in Guadeloupe, to cities such as Cayenne, Fort-de-France (Martinique) and Miami (Fort Laudardale).
As of May 5, Belém will join the network, with a weekly flight, which will connect passengers in the Caribbean and Brazil more directly.
Flight AF602 will depart Cayenne at 3:40 pm on Fridays, landing in Belém at 5:15 pm. The return takes place on Saturday at 9:35 am, arriving in the capital of French Guiana at 11:10 am.
The A320 used on the route has 168 seats, 12 in business class and 156 in economy class. The aircraft are equipped with Wi-Fi, according to Air France.
In addition to the flight to Belém, Air France will readjust the connection from Pointe-à-Pitre to Fort Laudardale starting in March, with two weekly flights on Thursdays and Saturdays, returning on Fridays and Sundays.
