Air Canada Is Doubling Its Flights to Grenada
Air Canada is doubling its flight service to Grenada this upcoming fall in a big boost for one of the Caribbean’s hottest destinations, Caribbean Journal has learned.
When Air Canada resumes service to Grenada on Oct. 29, it will be ramping up its flights to four times each week.
That will mean flights between Toronto and Grenada on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
The ramped-up service comes as Grenada is seeing sizzling tourism growth and new hotel development.
The latter includes the soon-to-debut Beach House by Silversands and the highly-anticipated new Six Senses, the brand’s first-ever resort in the Caribbean.
“Canada is an extremely important market for Grenada and traditionally has been our fourth largest source market behind USA, UK and the Caribbean. We will be frontloading a very aggressive campaign to ensure that we capitalize on this doubling of seat capacity,” says Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority. “The equipment being utilized is the Boeing 737 Max 8 with 16 business class seats and 153 economy seats. Travelers can look forward to major events like Grenada Rugby World 7s taking place from November 30 – December 2 and Carriacou Parang Festival from December 15-17, to name a few. Grenada will also welcome two new luxury hotels to the island in Q4 2023 – Beach House and Six Senses.”
Air Canada is planning a broader expansion to the Caribbean as demand heats up, with new routes to Grenada and destinations like Martinique and Cancun, among others.
“We are pleased to be able to offer more connections between Grenada and Toronto with up to four flights per week,” said Nino Montagnese, Vice President at Air Canada Vacations. “This enhanced schedule will allow Canadian travelers to experience the unspoiled natural gems and crystalline waters of Grenada. Customers can also escape to paradise with ease with Air Canada Vacations’ robust collection of vacation packages.”
