Having been spared a direct hit by Hurricane Maria, the Guadeloupe Islands suffered no damage to its infrastructure and are ready to welcome guests in the upcoming winter season. All roads have now been cleared of all debris; power lines have been repaired and service restored across all five islands. Air traffic resumed on September 20, 2017 at Pole Caraïbe Airport as well as service on the inter-Island ferry network.
