Following the Interline agreement signed in 2003, Air France and Winair will be implementing a commercial code-share agreement between Sint Maarten / Saint Martin and several Caribbean islands as of 16 June 2014.
Air France is therefore expanding its offer of services in the region, with flights via Saint Martin to Saint Barthelemy, Tortola, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts and Nevis.
Customers travelling from Europe can access six destinations served by Winair, operated in Twin- Otters of 19 seats and departing from Sint Maarten / Saint Martin. With a single ticket, Winair and Air France customers can now check in their baggage at their departure city directly to their final destination.
Flying Blue members can earn Miles on both airlines’ flights and Air France Business customers connecting on codeshare flights with Winair can access the lounge at the St. Maarten Princess Juliana International Airport.
“The extension of this partnership offers our customers new travel opportunities in the Caribbean. This agreement confirms our commitment to expand our offer of services and strengthen our presence in the region”, declared Christian Oberlé, VP Commercial for Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Latin America at Air France KLM.
“Winair also welcomes our expanded partnership with Air France, a truly global airline. Our code-share agreement now affords our mutual customers seamless transit and connections via the St. Maarten hub of Princess Juliana International Airport”, declared Michael D. Cleaver, President and CEO of Winair.
