Grenada Board of Tourism welcomes Toronto-Grenada schedule

Getting from the shivering cold to the sublime warmth is easier than ever with the new air connection from Toronto, Canada, to Grenada, which began mid-December of last year. The Ministry of Tourism and the Grenada Board of Tourism is pleased that Caribbean Airlines has engaged this new route, stating it is a welcomed development that will have enormous positive implications for Grenada’s tourism industry. This new route will also strengthen the current services provided by Air Canada Vacations and Sunwing Airlines.

According to Caribbean Airlines Ltd., the beginning of the flight will result in passengers traveling directly from the Maurice Bishop International Airport to the Lester Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Canada, on Sundays and Thursdays. This return flight, which will operate under the code BW608, will originate in Trinidad, connect in Grenada and continue non-stop to Toronto. Flight BW609 will conversely function non-stop out of Toronto to Grenada and then to Trinidad.

In announcing this additional 154-seat service to Grenada, Caribbean Airlines stressed the airline’s commitment to offering customers better connections between the Caribbean region and North America. It considered the new service as a natural progression for the airline, since the new service compliments existing services to Grenada from New York and Trinidad&Tobago.

Tourism Minister Hon. Peter David opined that this new year-round route by Caribbean Airlines will positively impact arrival numbers from North America. He noted that “our regional neighbors benefit tremendously from the Canadian market, and increased airlift between Grenada and Canada has always been a priority for us, having regard for the fact that the Canadian market is one of the few around the world that is not in recession.” Minister David also pointed out that “the onus is for us to now increase our marketing drive to make maximum use of what the Canadian market can offer.”
