“Caribbean Airlines continues to be a significant stakeholder in connecting St. Vincent and the Grenadines to the region and to North and South America,” said Glen Beache, CEO of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority, in a written release. “The start of this non-stop service between St. Vincent and New York, on March 14, which is also National Heroes Day, is cause for much celebration as all visitors to St. Vincent and the Grenadines will benefit from the weekly operation. The flight will also boost commerce and the business community who are regular exporters to the United States.”
