We haven’t heard too much from Air Belgium lately. But the carrier has just announced to offer scheduled flights again out of Charleroi airport, south of Brussels. And these routes will take you to the French overseas departments Guadeloupe and Martinique for prices staring at €318. One piece of checked luggage and – most likely – full onboard service are included.
You can also upgrade to business class for €1,675 or get some extra legroom in premium economy for prices around €690. If you like, you can also opt for different cabin classes on your outbound and inbound flight.
There is no reliable information about Air Belgiums current financial situation. If you want to avoid any trouble, you should use a credit card to book your flight. Or you book a packaged deal with e.g., Expedia. This way, you should also be safe in case of the airline’s inability to pay.
The carrier will operate an Airbus A340-300 during the whole trip. You will first fly from Charleroi to Fort-de-France, Martinique. From there, the journey will continue to Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe, and eventually back to Belgium. The layout in economy class will be 2-4-2.
