“We look forward to touching down in Guadeloupe again for the winter season 2017/18. This hidden gem in the Caribbean will now have 11 flights from the US every week, more than any airline has ever operated before. With three such great catchment areas like New York City, Providence/Greater Boston/Connecticut and Fort Lauderdale/Miami/South Florida, we are opening up the Guadeloupe Islands to so many American travelers looking for a unique Caribbean experience,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer, Norwegian Air.

Service will be significantly increased out of New York with six weekly flights (everyday but Wednesday).

Tickets are now available for purchase at with fares as low as $79 one-way, taxes included.

“The new connection from Providence, with its great proximity to both Boston and Connecticut, is exciting as it will allow more Americans travelers much smoother and more affordable access to the Guadeloupe Islands. In the last two years our French Caribbean archipelago has become the Top Emerging Destination in the US. After major recognition in the media and now with almost daily flights out of JFK, we are thrilled to be able to deliver a highly flexible air offer to the New Yorkers.
