Grenada is readying for the return of direct flights from Frankfurt, Germany via Condor Airlines.

Thus far, bookings for the flights from Germany have “been going great,” according to Tourism Minister Alexandra Otway-Noel.

That has led Condor to move up the date of the inaugural flight from the third week of November to the first week of November, she said.

“Condor has been so impressed with their figures that they have actually added flights. They were supposed to start towards the end of November, but now I believe their first flight is going to be on the 1st of November,” Otway-Notel said.

That’s been joined by a push to court German tourists and travel agents, the Minister said.

“The GTA has been instrumental in ensuring that we are running ads and we are engaging the travel trade over there, so that they know Grenada is back on the agenda in Germany,” she said. “Condor is so pleased with what they are seeing and the interest from Germany has been tremendous. So we are really excited.”

Grenada has seen an almost 100 percent increase in German tourists compared to 2013, according to a government release.
