Air Canada to launch year round Toronto-Grenada service
Air Canada is set to launch year-round service between Toronto and Grenada beginning this winter. The news was confirmed by Alexandra Otway Noel, Tourism Minister in the Government of Grenada. Grenada is an island country located in the southeastern Caribbean Sea. The country comprises main Grenada and six other small islands. This country is also a part of the Commonwealth of Nations.
The decision to launch flights to the island nation is the result of extensive talks between Grenada’s government and the officials of Air Canada. President of the airline held talks with Dr. Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister of Grenada, and Alexandra Otway Noel to complete the formalities and discuss the terms and the arrangements.
Apparently, the service to this new destination will be operated by Air Canada’s leisure carrier Air Canada Rouge. Boeing 767-300 and Airbus A319 comprise the fleet of Air Canada Rouge. This is good news for travelers as now they can book Air Canada tickets and explore the locales of the tiny island country hidden away in the Caribbean.
Air Canada Rouge that launched operations early this year, considers Grenada as a prospective seasonal destination worth exploring during winters. The airline waited until now for the necessary government regulations and approvals before formally launching its operations.
Alexandra Otway Noel expressed her pleasure at the airline’s decision and said that this service will boost the country’s tourism manifolds. The minister and her team have also been able to negotiate and renew routine operations with Conivasa Airlines via Trinidad to Margarita.
