SVG Added To Air Canada’s Schedule

AirCanadaSVGAir Canada, Canada’s largest domestic and international airline, is heading for the Argyle International Airport.

According to an Air Canada Release over the weekend, the airline has added St. Vincent and the Grenadines to its Winter Schedule, December 2017 to April 2018.

The release stated that weekly flights to St. Vincent and the Grenadines have been scheduled beginning December 14, 2017 and ending on April 12, 2018, through Air Canada Rouge, the vacation and leisure airline subsidiary of Air Canada.

Bookings for the Toronto – SVG route are now open, and travellers are assured travel on Air Canada’s Airbus A319 aircraft, which seats up to 142 passengers.

This is more welcomed news for SVG, following Caribbean Airlines announcement of its decision to offer direct flights between Miami and SVG, throughout the month of June, 2017.

CAL is currently offering twice weekly (Friday and Sunday) flights between Trinidad and Tobago and SVG.
The Air Canada and CAL announcements have been greeted with much excitement by persons concerned with tourism and the Argyle International Airport here.

Since it opened the international airport on February 14, 2017, other than a few chartered international flights for that occasion, SVG has found it difficult to secure commitments from major airlines, as far as providing a service to SVG is concerned.
