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

From December 22 through March 30, American Airlines is adding an additional flight to its schedule, departing Miami International Airport on Saturdays at 9:40 a.m. and arriving at Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport at 2:23 p.m. This new flight will be in addition to the later flight that departs Miami at 10:40 a.m. which will allow seamless connections from other cities.

The new frequency to Grenada strengthen American’s Caribbean route network, which includes more than 900 weekly flights to 36 destinations in the region, according to Alfredo Gonzalez, American’s Managing Director for the Caribbean.
