Despite being one of the newer carriers in the region, Air Antilles already has an established reputation in the industry. It was originally formed in 2002 as part of Air Guyane, but was renamed in 2016 with the adoption of its distinctive new livery. The airline still lives up to its callsign "Green Bird"! This small airline covers a widespread network of destinations, including some of the most desirable holiday destinations around the Caribbean.
A small fleet includes the ATR 72-600 and the ATR 42-500 for cross-regional flights, while the Twin Otters and the Let 410s are perfectly suited to island-hopping services and internal flights around French Guiana out of Cayenne.
The airline's core routes serve:

With no long-haul destinations, it makes sense for Air Antilles to operate principally as a single-class airline -- a sensible approach for a company that puts the service and the destination first. Leisure and business travelers can expect a comfortable flying experience with an emphasis on friendliness and practicality, rather than added extras.
The airline operates a convenient online check-in service. Travelers should note that latest check-in times vary at different airports: 45 minutes before flights to and from Cayenne and one hour before for flights to and from San Juan.
