Seasonal flights between Charlotte, N.C., and the Caribbean island of Grenada will relaunch June 4.
Once-weekly American Airlines flights will depart Charlotte International Airport (CLT) at 9:52 a.m. and arrive at Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) at 2:43 p.m.
American Airlines also operates daily nonstops from Miami International Airport (MIA). These flights depart at 10:22 a.m. and arrive in Grenada at 2:03 p.m.
Other airlines that fly directly to Grenada include JetBlue from New York and Delta Air Lines from Atlanta.
“Visitor arrivals have already started to increase as more people get back to traveling, and we anticipate more travelers looking to get away during the summer months,” Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority, said in a press statement. “We’re delighted our airline partners are realizing traveler interest in Grenada and supporting it with new connectivity.”
“The resumption of American Airlines flights from Charlotte opens up great opportunity to travelers from smaller, behind-the-gateway airports to come enjoy the distinctive Caribbean experience that only Grenada offers,” added Roach.
Grenada recently made it easier for both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers to visit. COVID-19 tests are no longer required, either prior to takeoff or upon arrival in Grenada. Also lifted are the island’s COVID-19 quarantine requirements.
Grenada and its sister islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique are located in the eastern Caribbean, just south of Barbados. Attractions include 40 white-sand beaches, including the world-famous Grand Anse Beach. Grenada also boasts 15 waterfalls, six chocolate factories and three rum distilleries.
Grenada’s 30 dive sites include the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean, the ‘Bianca C,’ and the world’s first Underwater Sculpture Park.
