Air Canada Introduces Service to St Vincent’s New Airport

KINGSTOWN, St Vincent, Friday May 5, 2017 – Air Canada is spreading its wings to St Vincent and the Grenadines this winter season.

Pending the green light from the Ralph Gonsalves administration, Air Canada is banking on introducing weekly flights starting December 14.

The Canadian flag carrier is the first international airline to announce scheduled flights to the near three-month-old Argyle International Airport.

“Air Canada is continuing its strategic, global expansion with a diverse range of exciting new non-stop routes this winter to Australia, South America, the Caribbean and the United States,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.

The flights will be operated using Air Canada’s Airbus A319 aircraft, which seats 136 passengers. Air Canada Rouge, the vacation and leisure airline subsidiary of Air Canada, will manage the flight.

In addition to St Vincent, Air Canada is also hoping to provide a new service to Belize.

According to Smith, “the addition of the first long-haul, international scheduled service to St Vincent in the Caribbean, along with the addition of Toronto-Belize, Montreal –Phoenix, Vancouver-Orlando offers new choices for travellers looking to escape Canadian winters, and we also look forward to welcoming Florida residents on board for convenient access to some of the nest skiing in North America.”

The airline said flights are already available for purchase.
