Air Canada, Sunwing, Resume Flights to Grenada

St. George, Grenada

Air Canada and Sunwing Airlines have resumed service from YYZ to GND, the Grenada Tourism Authority announced on 08NOV, for seasonal service and beyond.

Air Canada has launched twice-weekly service on Thursdays and Sundays, while Sunwing Airlines is offering a Sunday flight during the winter season.

Official welcome ceremonies were held for each carrier's first arrivals at GND, with both flights at almost full capacity.

Grenada has been experiencing a surge in air traffic with new and returning flights, and will see further added capacity from Europe in the coming weeks.

Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority said “The Canadian market is our fourth largest market with an average length of stay of 12 days. Arrivals from that market were significantly impacted as Canada was one of the last markets to fully open back up for travel. We are pleased that the Canadian government has now relaxed restrictions on non-vaccinated Canadian citizens to travel.

Our team in Canada has been working diligently with travel advisors and tour operators, on exciting co-op campaigns and incentive schemes and feedback from operators is that future loads are quite healthy.”

Speaking at the arrival ceremonies, Minister for Infrastructure and Physical Development, Public Utilities, Civil Aviation and Transportation, the Honourable Dennis Cornwall stated, “At this time when the convenience of travel is a pivotal factor to attracting international visitors, the resumption of direct service from Canada is critical as we continue to rebuild from the pandemic.”

For 2023, seat capacity from Canada will be 27,745 which represents a 52 per cent increase over 2019.
