Flight Information

All flights into Guadeloupe arrive at La Raizet airport in Pointe a Pitre on the Grand-Terre island. The airport has been undergoing a complete makeover so expect a little dust at times.

I found two main airlines that fly into La Raizet. They are American Airlines and Air France.

Traveling from Europe:

Air France
Air France has flights to arrive in La Raizet on September 30 at 2:25pm. But many of the Air France flights requires you to change airports in Paris, France. You must collect your baggage before proceeding to your connecting flight.

Traveling from the United States:

American Airlines
Flights from the United States will take 2 days. One getting you to San Juan or Miami the first day, and then the following day you depart San Juan/Miami to arrive at La Raizet. I could not find a flight from American Airlines that would get you there on September 30.

American Airlines has no flights to the La Raizet airport on 9/30. Flights arriving on October 1, are later in the afternoon.

Departing La Raizet airport - there are no American Airline flights departing PTP on 10/4 or 10/6 or 10/7
Only return is Monday, Oct 5 or Thursday Oct 8.

Air France
Air France has flights departing in Miami on 9/28 and/or 9/29 at 9:05am that will will arrive into La Raizet at 1:45pm the same day. There are no flights avaialable on Air France for Sunday, September 27 or Wednesday, September 30.

When traveling Air France, you will most likely have to change airports in Paris, France. You must collect your baggage before proceeding to your connecting flight.

Departing La Raizet airport will need to be on Sunday, Oct 4 or Monday Oct 5 at 4:20pm and arriving back into Miami that evening at 9:20pm. (prices are very high on Oct 3 and Oct 6).
