Haiti - Tourism : Things are moving everywhere !
Transat France, with its Lookéa Magic Haiti, located in a park of over 55 hectares on the coast Arcadins, targets some 5,000 customers in its first year of presence in Haiti with a Lookéa club and discovery circuits.
This implementation was made possible thanks to an agreement with Decameron, who took over the site and renovated the former Club Med, located on the coast Arcadins "We will be pioneering on this destination that deserves to be known [...] This is one of our most beautiful Lookéa in the Caribbean [...] it appears already in the Top 5 sales of winter via our offer Book early," welcomed Patrice Caradec, President of Transat France adding "This club where Look Voyages will have for this first year 120 of the 400 rooms will also be open to Canadian clientele of Transat who was programming the hotel under the name of Club Indigo.
Patrice Caradec hopes to reach its target of 5,000 customers in the first year through stays of 7, 9, 11 and 14 nights but also mini-circuits discovery +2 days at Lookéa. The club will be powered by direct flights of Air Caribbean to Port-au-Prince (via Santo Domingo to return).
The arrival of Transat France should thus make the leap attendance of Haiti, which attracted 30,000 French in 2014.
