New bi-weekly flights by Caribbean Airlines between Grenada and Toronto will be indefinite.
The Airline has announced that it will begin flights between the island and the continent on 15 December to cater for the anticipated increase in air passenger travel during winter and there are no indications that the flights would cease when the season ends in April. The flights will be on Thursdays and Sundays.
The island’s Tourism Minister Peter David has welcomed the announcement saying that he hopes this new initiative would result in increased and sustained visitor arrival from Canada.
The Minister added that “the onus is for us to now increase our marketing drive to make maximum use of what the Canadian market can offer”.
“Our regional neighbors benefit tremendously from the Canadian market and increase airlift between Grenada and Canada has always been a priority for us,” he said.
The twice weekly Caribbean Airline flight will originate in Trinidad and Tobago with one stop in Grenada before heading to Toronto. On its return it would make one stop in Grenada before terminating in Trinidad.
The Trinidad-owned Caribbean Airlines already travels the Grenada New York route twice a week and the Grenada Trinidad route twice a day.©
