Praising the step, Minister Modeste-Curwen noted, “The resumption of the flights and the return of Air Canada is a welcome step at the time when accessibility and travel convenience are necessary elements to attract the international visitors. The arrival of the Canadian passengers has remained strong despite the absence of direct service and any restrictions, and the government is aware of the demand. We are committed to working alongside our airline partners. It happens to ensure continuous connectivity to our country.”

As per the records, Grenada has witnessed a significant boost in the travellers ahead of 2019, and the business is up 37 percent, stated Diana Rodriguez, Product Director, Air Canada Vacations.

The resumption service of the Air Canada comes on the heels of the Canadian market, which was visited by GTA’s CEO, Petra Roach, who further met with the stakeholders of the industry who shared various developmental plans for the growth of the market and agreed on the various initiatives to run the business for the winter season. 

The CEO further remarked that Canada would be recognised as one of the most significant tourism generating markets across the globe, which have around 41 percent of Canadians choosing beach destinations

To that end, Grenada will continue to be a firm favourite amongst Canadian travellers, with a perfect stay of up to ten days on the island.

This market has continued to grow over the years and delivers a great return on investment.

Minister Modeste-Curwen expressed, “The research from the GTA shows that visitors from Canada are fascinated with the authentic and breathtaking experience that the Caribbean country offers. The direct connection will further lead to the significant increase in the Canadian visitors across the shores of Grenada.”
