With winter around the corner, it is now easier to escape the cold to visit Pure Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean, with its newly announced flights.

With record visitor arrival numbers logged for 2018 so far, the continued demand for Grenada has positively impacted airlines such as Air Canada and American Airlines, who have announced additional flights in December to bring holidaymakers to the three-island destination.

From December 22nd through March 30th, American Airlines is adding an additional flight to its schedule, departing Miami International Airport on Saturdays at 9:40 and arriving at Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport at 14:23.

This new flight will be in addition to the later flight that departs Miami at 10:40 which will allow seamless connections from other cities.

“With this new frequency to Grenada we further strengthen our Caribbean route network, which today includes more than 900 weekly flights to 36 destinations in the region.

“Grenada is an important market for American, and we look forward to starting this new seasonal flight helping us better meet customer demand,” said Alfredo Gonzalez, American managing director for the Caribbean.

Starting December 18th, Grenada will have three direct flights per week from Canada’s Toronto Pearson International Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

This additional weekly flight will give Canadians more options to fly from Toronto direct into St. George’s, Grenada.

“This is great news for Pure Grenada as airlift is critical to the continued growth of our destination’s tourism industry,” noted chief executive of the Grenada Tourism Authority, Patricia Maher.

“The US and Canada represent two of our largest source markets and we are thrilled to see that our airline partners recognize that Grenada is trending upwards and validate our growth with additional airlift.”

The destination continues to offer visitors from North America non-stop seasonal flights from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport every Saturday with Delta Air Lines.

JetBlue also continues its daily flights from John F. Kennedy International Airport and will be offering its premium Mint service on Saturdays from December 1st.
