American Doubles Up On Weekend Flights To Grenada

(CARIBBEAN360) – People living in the United States now have more options and easier connections when travelling to Grenada.

The airline has added a flight which leaves Miami International Airport after 9 a.m. and arrives at the Maurice Bishop International Airport after 1 p.m. on Saturdays, supplementing the existing flight that leaves Miami later in the morning.

“We are happy for the double capacity from this key gateway of Miami International Airport on Saturdays with American Airlines, as we have experienced strong growth in visitor arrivals from the United States of 12.3 per cent year to date in 2018,” said Chief Executive Officer of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) Patricia Maher.

The US market accounts for 47 per cent of market share for stayover arrivals to Grenada, with the five top performing feeder markets being New York, Florida, New Jersey, California and Texas.
