There are many airports in French Guiana. However, not all French Guiana airports have regularly scheduled flights. In fact, some small airports have no regularly scheduled passenger services.
Some regional airports in French Guiana are only served by small "local" airlines which do not make their fares available to major travel web sites. For flights out of that sort of city, you would need to research which airlines serve the city and locate their web site or phone number by any means you have at your disposal.
French Guiana (French: Guyane française, officially Guyane) is an overseas departement (departement d'outre-mer, or DOM) of France, located on the northern coast of South America. Like the other DOMs, French Guiana is also a region d'outre-mer of France. As a part of France, French Guiana is in the European Union, and its currency is the euro. French Guiana is the smallest political entity on the South American mainland.
Though sharing cultural affinities with the French-speaking territories of the Caribbean, French Guiana cannot be considered to be part of that region, since the Caribbean Sea actually lies several hundred miles to the west, beyond the arc of the Lesser Antilles.
French Guiana consists of two main geographical regions: a coastal strip where the majority of the people live, and dense, near-inaccessible rainforest which gradually rises to the modest peaks of the Tumac-Humac mountains along the Brazilian frontier.
French Guiana is heavily dependent on France for subsidies and goods. The main industries are fishing (accounting for three-quarters of foreign exports), gold mining and timber. In addition, the Centre Spatial Guyanais at Kourou accounts for 25% of the GDP. There is very little manufacturing and agriculture is largely undeveloped. Tourism, especially eco-tourism, is growing. Unemployment is a major problem, running at about 20% to 30%.
French Guiana's population of 200 000 (2006 estimate), most of whom live along the coast, is very ethnically diverse. Estimates of the percentages of French Guiana ethnic composition vary, a problem compounded by the large numbers of legal and illegal immigrants (about 20,000).
Mulattos (People of mixed black and white ancestry) are the largest ethnic group, though estimates vary as to the exact percentage, depending upon whether the large Haitian community is included as well. Generally the Creole population is judged at about 60% to 70% of the total population with Haitians (comprising roughly one-third of Creoles) and 30% to 50% without. Roughly 14% are Europeans, the vast majority of whom are French. The predominant religion in the country is Roman Catholicism. ()
