ETF Airways is proud to announce its active participation in two projects with the aim of establishing a permanent presence of our brand in the French overseas territories and, over time, adding more jobs for their residents and creating great value for the local community. Two sister companies have been created, Fly-Li which will be based in La Réunion (RUN) and Fly-Wi in Martinique (FDF). Each airline is expected to initially operate one B737-800 each and the first flights are expected to take off in the fourth quarter of the 22nd quarter. We are already in talks to expand the fleet of our two sister airlines and the possibility of adding two more B737-800s at the end of 2023 is under discussion.

The new facility in Martinique will be led by Samuel Vivarès. Replaced by Eddy Luce at the helm of Corsair in February 2022, Corsair’s former Caribbean and America regional director is developing another project.

This time he finds himself in an airline specializing in charter flights and ACMI (charter crewed flights). It is based at the Dubrovnik airport, Croatia.

In collaboration with local investors, we have chosen Samuel Vivarès, with over 10 years of experience as Regional Director of Corsair in the Antilles, to represent the two companies together with the CEO of ETF Airways, Stjepan Bedić. ETF Airways intends to operate scheduled flights in the Caribbean but will continue to offer its ACMI and charter experience worldwide.
