Traveling from the USA to St Vincent and the Grenadines is set to become much easier.
New St Vincent Flight Service From March 2018
The airline plans to launch the new nonstop flight service on 14th March 2018.
Flights will be operated on Wednesday connecting New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport with St Vincent’s Argyle International Airport.
New Flights Boosting Connections with North America
The introduction of direct flights from New York follows Air Canada’s launch of flights from Toronto to St Vincent last December.
According to Garvin Medera, Chief Executive Officer of Caribbean Airlines: “Caribbean Airlines is in the business of connecting people, and this non-stop service between St Vincent and New York will provide closer links for travel and commerce between the eastern Caribbean and North America. Our mission is to connect the region more closely and as we realise this ambition, our valued customers can look forward to a schedule that allows for easy and convenient travel, to facilitate their needs.”
Glen Beache, the Chief Executive Officer of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority commented: “Caribbean Airlines continues to be a significant stakeholder in connecting St Vincent and the Grenadines to the region and to North and South America. The airline was one of the first to offer non-stop flights to our new airport last year, which also serves as an international gateway to the Grenadine Islands. The start of this non-stop service between St. Vincent and New York, on March 14th 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.”
A Boost to Tourism & Real Estate
The launch of the new flights should provide a boost to tourism throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines including islands such as Palm Island, as well as to the market for real estate in Bequia, Canouan and other islands in St Vincent & the Grenadines.
