Air Canada will resume direct service from Toronto to Grenada this fall. The nonstop service, which will commence on 30OCT 2022, will be twice weekly on Sundays and Thursdays, connecting YYZ to GND.

“The return of Air Canada is welcome news at a time when accessibility and travel convenience are key to attracting international visitors. Canadian arrival numbers have remained strong, in spite of the absence of direct service, so we know that the demand is there. We are committed to working alongside our airline partners to ensure continuous connectivity to our country,” said Clarice Modeste-Curwen, Grenada's Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation, Climate Resilience and the Environment.

“The news on the service to Grenada is welcome as the destination is pacing ahead of 2019 numbers and group business is up 37%,” stated Diana Rodriguez, Product Director, Air Canada Vacations.

Air Canada’s service resumption comes on the heels of a Canadian market visit by Grenada Tourism Authority CEO Petra Roach, who met with industry stakeholders to share developmental plans for the growth of the market and to agree on collaborative initiatives to drive business for the winter season.

"Canada is recognized as one of the most important tourism generating markets in the world with 41% of Canadians choosing beach destinations. To that end, Grenada continues to be a firm favorite amongst Canadian travelers with a typical stay of up to 10 days on island. This market has continued to grow over the years and delivers a great return on investment," said Roach.

Grenada recently updated its entry protocols making it easier for vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers to reach the destination. Regardless of vaccination status, travellers arriving into Grenada:

  • Do not need to take any COVID-19 tests prior to arrival or upon arrival
  • Do not need to fill out a Health Declaration Form prior to arrival or upon arrival
  • Do not need to quarantine on arrival
