According to press release, Air France is set to expand its presence in Latin America and the Caribbean this summer. Starting from May 5, 2023, the airline will introduce a new weekly service between Belem, Brazil and Cayenne, French Guiana, using its Airbus A320 aircraft.
Over the past few years, Air France has been strengthening its presence in the Americas, with increased flight frequencies to destinations such as Pointe a Pitre, Guadeloupe, and Fort-de-France, Martinique. This expansion is good news for French Guiana, which remains one of the lesser-known travel destinations in the wider region.
French Guiana is a department of France located on the northern coast of South America. It is known for its diverse wildlife, including rare species such as the harpy eagle and giant river otter, as well as the Guiana Space Centre, which launches satellites into orbit. Other attractions in French Guiana include the Hmong village of Cacao, the Kaw Nature Reserve, and the capital city of Cayenne, with its colorful colonial architecture and vibrant markets selling spices, produce, and crafts. The region is also famous for its cuisine, which blends French, African, and indigenous influences.
