A renewed fleet by 2024 

The aviation sector is actively committed to the energy transition. Corsair is one of the first airlines to renew its entire fleet. Following the delivery of 5 Airbus A330neo, the airline has ordered 4 additional neo aircraft, to be delivered between February and October 2024. The environmental efficiency of this new Airbus A330neo is a significant improvement on previous-generation aircraft, with a 60% reduction in noise footprint and 25% lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions per seat. In 2024, Corsair will have completed the renewal of its aircraft, thus making its fleet one of the most up-to-date on the market. The Bordeaux - Pointe-à-Pitre route will be operated with A330neo during the 2024-2025 season.

A gourmet meal for passengers

Corsair continues to develop its in-flight gourmet offer, with meals prepared by chefs for its Metropolitan France-French West Indies routes.

Business class passengers departing from Bordeaux will be treated to dishes by chef Mohamed Cheikh, winner of TV’s Top Chef 2023. Mohamed Cheikh offers a sophisticated cuisine, rich in distinctive Mediterranean flavours and spices.

Business class passengers flying from Pointe-à-Pitre will be able to sample Chef Jimmy Bibrac’s creations. Corsair shares this chef’s aim of showcasing the heritage of the French West Indies and contributing to the development of France’s overseas territories.

Pascal de Izaguirre, CEO of Corsair: ‘Our goal is to offer direct access to Guadeloupe for the inhabitants of Bordeaux and the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. We will thus help to further develop exchanges for tourists, families and business travellers, between Nouvelle-Aquitaine and the French Caribbean.’ 

Simon Dreschel, Chairman of the Bordeaux Airport Management: ‘The re-opening of this direct route to Pointe-à-Pitre for the 3rd year running is a clear indication of its popularity among passengers from the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and the islands of Guadeloupe. It corresponds to the airport’s strategy of consolidating high added-value offers alongside an airline partner ensuring a reliable, high-quality service.

Naomi Pétrine, Managing Director of the Îles de Guadeloupe Tourism Board: ‘The direct route from Bordeaux represents a truly competitive advantage for our destination. As a French overseas department, our goal is to forge lasting partnerships with airline companies across the whole of France.’
