Getting to Grenada


Flights to Grenada

We will be updating this regularly. Please remember that it is always a good idea to check with your local travel agent, as they may have really great deals on the same flights you are booking online.

Visitors can fly with the following airlines:

Canada:

Fly direct with  Air Canada, West Jet, plus seasonal charter flights on Sunwing.

We also find it quite convenient to fly out of Toronto on American Airlines, but you need to change planes in Miami. The connecting flight used to be in the afternoon, but it has been moved to mid-morning, so now one needs to depart Toronto at 6 am (and remember to arrive VERY EARLY for the customs at the Toronto airport!).  The benefit of this is that you now arrive in Grenada at 2:30-ish, which means you can get settled and be enjoying the sunset with a cold drink… the previous schedule had you arriving around 8 pm or later, which meant you arrived in the dark and didn’t get to enjoy any of those stunning views!

Germany:

Condor flies directly to Grenada. www.condor.com

United Kingdom:

British Airways & Virgin Atlantic each provide two flights a week to Grenada. They are ‘direct’ but one way of your flight you may have a brief stop on another idand to board additional passengers or have the plane cleaned.

United States:

Frequent flights on American Airlines – see the note on travelling with American above,  departing from Canada,.and  Jet Blue now flies from New York 5 times a week to Grenada and often have fantastic deals!  Delta, also flies out of JFK New York weekly on Saturdays, as well as offering a weekly flight from Atlanta,Georgia.

Venezuela:

Conviasa flies once a week from Caracas to Grenada.  portal.conviasa.aero/english

Carriacou, Union, Bequia, Canouan:

SVG is ideal for visiting our sister island Carriacou  – daily flights to Carriacou and Union Islands, with additonal flights depending on demand – to Bequia and Canouan flysvgair.com

Or Take the Ferry!

You can also travel between Grenada and Carriacou via the Osprey Ferry. It’s a fantastic option and gives you a chance to view the islands from the sea, very evocative!

Please note that at this time there is no ferry to Trinidad. There is a cargo ship departing from Grenville that accepts passengers but it is extremely basic.  There are various articles onilne – and even a website – about a “new Grenada -Trinidad ferry” but it has not come to fruition.  We will watch for new on this option and share any progress!

Please Note:

Unfortunately, we feel that are no longer able to recommend LIAT and Caribbean Airlines to our guests.  These are our personal opinions and observations, each traveller should search for reviews and make their own opinions.

Should you choose to book your travel with LIAT, in our experience one should be prepared for long delays, cancelled flights, moved flights with little or no notice, being bumped off booked flights for dignitaries, or even left to sit at various ariports overnight – or for days – without proper communication or support.  As I write this update, our friends are currently sitting in Port of Spain airport, Trinidad and have been there for two full days.  A hotel was provided but no food or drinks, and of course as we found when this happens to us with LIAT – the staff cannot be found anywhere for updates or assistance.

In our personal experience we have found LIAT to be the worst, but Caribbean Airlines has frequently left us with delayed and cancelled flights, poor communication, and the last two times I tried to travel to Canada with them they moved my outbound flight to other days entirely (from Thursday to Sunday) with almost no notice, causing me to miss apointments and events.

Should you find yourself in this position, in Trinidad’s Port of Spain Piarco Airport there is excellent home-style food for good prices in the food court outside to the left of the building in the shady sitting area.  Since you must leave the security area to go there then go back through security to get inside, refrain from purchasing anything like alchohol or perfumes, etc, in Duty Free first, as you will not be allowed to take it back into the airport!
