British Airways is to add a third weekly service to Grenada this winter.

The carrier currently flies between Gatwick and Maurice Bishop International airport (via St Lucia) on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but will add a Sunday flight (via Antigua) from October 30, 2022.

Virgin Atlantic also flies between London Heathrow and Grenada (via Barbados), with a twice-weekly service operating on Tuesday and Saturdays (moving to Tuesdays and Fridays from November 1).

As previously reported, next year will see the opening of Six Senses Grenada on the Caribbean island’s La Sagesse Beach – part of a development which will also see the addition of the Intercontinental Grenada Resort.

Commenting on the news Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority, said:

“We want to thank British Airways for their confidence in Grenada as a destination, and for providing our diaspora and UK visitors with more flexibility and convenience. In the first half of 2023, we will see the opening of Six Senses, a 100 room luxury resort with six villas, and The Beach House, sister hotel to Silversands, with 31 rooms.

“From stunning waterfalls, beautiful beaches, world famous dive sites and mouth watering cuisine; the Spice Isle offers a truly unforgettable experience all year round with something on offer for every type of traveller.”
