Did AF Have A Mini Hub At MIA?

Sat Dec 20, 2003 9:32 am

I used to constantly fly through MIA in the 80's and mid to late 90's and could have sworn AF had a mini hub @ MIA to service the French territories in the Caribbean. I was @MIA today and there didn't seem to be too much AF presence. Could it have been scaled back due to SkyTeam and code share with Air Jamaica? My search engine isn't working as I'm at work, so I'm sorry if this thread is a repeat. Smile

Hi,

Air France does have its mini hub although it is based at Guadeloupe and Martinique, rather then Miami. Air France flies to Miami from these islands using ERJ-145 and A320 aircraft.

Air France has one A320 (F-GKXC) based in PTP/FDF for flights on the Caribbean network. This plane is fully operated by AF Crews (Pilots + F/A). Other flights are operated on behalf of AF by Air Caraibes ERJ145 mainly.

From MIA, AF operate a daily flight to PAP (2 daily on saturday ) and then to FDF and PTP.
From PTP/FDF, AF flies to CCS, CAY, PAP, POS.
