Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport  has begun welcoming visitors from neighbouring Caricom nations.

The island's borders re--opened to its regional counterparts on July15.

Though identified as Low-Risk Countries due to inactive community transmission, travelers originating from these destinations will still need to observe and agree to mandatory protocols prior to booking and on arrival to the three-island destination.   

“We are thrilled to be able to welcome regional visitors from our closest neighbors in the region,” said Patricia Maher, CEO of the GTA.

“The Grenada Tourism Authority and all of its partners in the private and public sector recognize that it is necessary for us to take gradual steps with the relaunch of tourism, not only for the benefit of our travelers but to also ensure the health and safety of our residents as well as protect the sustainability and viability of the Grenadian tourism industry.”  

Regional airlines have stepped up to facilitate intra-regional travel to the island.

Regional partner SVG Air is slated to begin regular flight service to sister-island Carriacou’s Lauriston Airport on July 22.

Regional carrier Caribbean Airlines have confirmed their schedule from Barbados to Grenada to start on July 22.

Turks & Caicos-based interCaribbean Airways is also set to launch nonstop flight service to Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport, beginning August 1.

Pure Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean, provides visitors with limitless opportunities to explore, relax and unwind. With diverse offerings such as culinary, soft adventure, romance, leisure, and sailing experiences targeting a varied audience including solo travelers, couples and families, travelers can easily tailor their trip to suit their needs.

“Grenada, Carricou and Petite Martinique has so much to offer our neighbours and with a quick flight over, they won’t need to go far to start their vacation,” Maher said.
