Air Caraïbes is based at Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport (airport code: PTP) in Guadeloupe. It is a French airline, founded in July of 2000, that mostly flies from Paris to destinations in the Caribbean. In 2012, the airline flew 1.2 millions passengers, 750,000 of which were on long-haul routes.

It operates a fleet of five Airbus A330s (one -200 and four -300s) and three ATR 72s. They currently have six A350s on order (three for the -900 and three for the -1000).

The livery is one that you might expect from an airline flying to and from sunny destinations. The blue belly is reminiscent of the water and the green (what looks like) palms give a feeling of the tropics. This livery should look pretty slick on the Airbus A350, especially with those blended winglets.
