Air Antilles introduces two new Twin Otter aircraft that will significantly improve passenger experience. They will serve Dominica and Saint-Barths
Air Antilles is investing in two new brand Twin Otter 2DHCG-400s. These new-generation airplanes will significantly improve passenger comfort and service quality. They will indeed bring major changes such as air conditioning on board and better ergonomic leather seats. Seat backs are higher and now provide support for the passenger’s head. The manufacturer also initiated a certification procedure for an increase in take-off weight. It will increase transport capacity to 250 kg of additional baggage. This certification should be granted during 2020. In the meantime, the new Air Antilles Twin Otter took certification tests on January 23. Despite the rainy skies overhanging the runway at St Barths’ Remy de Haenen Airport, it was a great success. Last February Air Antilles formalized the new aircraft’s operation. They will fly between Pointe-à-Pitre and Canefield in Dominica, then will strengthen the connection between Pointe-à-Pitre and Saint-Barths.
