Martinique Aimé Césaire airport arrivals location
Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport is centrally located in the country just a few miles from the capital Fort-de-France. There is a 9,850-foot runway to land the largest planes to have Martinique flight departures. Many Martinique arrivals come from France to this French-speaking island. Pre-corona time this was 2 million per year but many flights have since been canceled.
There are several reasons why you should travel to Martinique. It is a fantastically beautiful island in the Caribbean. Soon you would think that you have to go there because of the idyllic beaches. However, there are also volcanoes and therefore also mountains in Martinique. For that you will mainly have to discover the north of the island where you can go into the woods and experience beautiful waterfalls. Another way to experience the island is by getting out on the water. There is an annual festival to sail the Yole Ronde with a traditional fishing boat with hundreds of participants. There is also cultural heritage on the island and cultural festivals, slave savannah, and much more to discover on this Caribbean island. Like many islands in the Caribbean, it is also Carnival in Martinique at the beginning of the year.
Ground transportation at Martinique airport
After Martinique arrivals you can continue by taxi. There are several taxi companies available that are ready after you exit the Martinique arrivals hall.
You can also discover the island yourself by car. After arrival there are many car rental companies that ensure good departures from the airport. Most of the famous ones are present in the arrivals hall: Avis, Europcar, Enterprise, Hertz, Jumbo Car, Sixt, Auloc and Thrifty.
