American Eagle will add a second daily flight from San Juan to Martinique on July 2 that will eliminate a long layover on the southbound leg and an early departure on the return leg.
The flight will run through Aug. 24, resume on Nov. 4 and will operate through September 2011.
The new flight departs San Juan at 1:50 p.m., arriving in Fort-de-France at 3:45 p.m. The return leg departs Martinique at 4:15 p.m., arriving in San Juan at 6:09 p.m. The current service offers a 7:15 p.m. flight from San Juan that overnights in Fort-de-France and departs the next morning at 7:20 a.m.
"Connections will be easier now that travelers have flight options," according to a Martinique spokesperson.
