Virgin Atlantic adds third weekly London-Grenada flight
Virgin Atlantic will add a third weekly flight to Grenada from December 8.
The route from Heathrow via Barbados will operate each Friday through to March 29, 2024, and is in addition to flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Grenada Tourism Authority chairman Randall Dolland said he is “delighted” to welcome the third frequency, saying: “It is a clear indication that our tourism product continues on an upwards trajectory.
“Our valued partners at Virgin Atlantic have recognised this and this additional capacity will contribute significantly to even higher occupancies for our hotels and provide a substantial boost to our economy.”
Petra Roach, chief executive of the Grenada Tourism Authority, said: “This additional capacity perfectly aligns with the increased demand for events like the England v West Indies T20 cricket match and our 50th anniversary of independence, for which we anticipate a significant uptick of arrivals from the diaspora who are keen to celebrate this auspicious occasion with family and friends on the island.
“We extend our sincere gratitude to Virgin Atlantic for their unwavering support and confidence in Grenada and we commit to further fostering this partnership as we move forward.”
