A close partner of Delta, Air France says Guadeloupe passengers will be able to connect to or from more than 60 U.S. and Canadian destinations via Delta, which operates its largest hub in Atlanta. In the other direction, Air Frances Atlanta passengers will be able to connect via Guadeloupe to Martinique another French Caribbean island or to Cayenne in the French territory of French Guiana in South America (Wednesdays only).

For Air France, Atlanta becomes its second U.S. city with service to the Caribbean. The carrier already flies from Miami to Guadeloupe and to the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince.
