Improved air access to St. Vincent and the Grenadines has opened up a number of opportunities for the local tourism sector.
This was stated by Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority, Glen Beache, in his remarks on Monday December 10, 2018 at the official opening ceremony for the Liming Hotel on the Grenadines island of Bequia.
Mr. Beache said direct air access to this destination is of paramount importance.
Currently, Caribbean Airlines operates a weekly non-stop Wednesday service from JFK International in the USA and Air Canada Rouge a weekly non-stop Thursday service from Pearson International, Canada.
From Sunday December 16, 2018 Air Canada Rouge will add a second weekly non-stop flight to the destination; the Sunday flight will operate until April 2019.
