Air Canada Rouge which made its inaugural flight to St Vincent on December 14th, 2017, would continue with regular flights into AIA, following its winter service which ends on April 12th, 2018.
Air Canada added St Vincent and the Grenadines to its winter schedule as part of its continued expansion to its international network last year.
According to Glen Beache CEO of the Tourism Authority, Air Canada has already confirmed for additional flights following the end of their winter service.
“We are continuing the work to make sure these flights would not be seasonal”.

Beache also seeks to clear the air on an ongoing rumour that the Rogue flights are chartered, he disclosed that the flights are not chartered, but operated by Air Canada which is regularly scheduled flight.
