SVG Air will expand its routes, effective this end of this month.
Whilst continuing to service the Grenadine Islands, the Vincentian-owned airline will now fly from St. Vincent to the following destinations: Grenada, Carriacou, Barbados, St. Lucia (Castries), Dominica (Cane Field Airport), Antigua and St. Kitts and Nevis.
In addition its Antiguan-based subsidiary will provide connections to Barbuda and Montserrat.
“We have discussed our operations with the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and our new routes have been designed to increase flexibility and connectivity throughout the region,” said Graham Waters, chief operation officer of SVG Air.
Waters said that SVG Air would have no fewer than eight flights into St. Vincent per day, and five flights per day into Barbados, thereby ensuring that business commuters can conduct their business efficiently and without unnecessary overnight stays.
“The challenge for SVG Air, and in fact all carriers, is that none of us is really sure about how many people will fly so we will be continually monitoring the situation to suit the needs of our passengers,” Waters said.
With COVID-19 protocols now established across the region, SVG Air is expecting International travellers to start resuming travel to the Caribbean but at a reduced capacity.
SVG air operates a fleet of aircraft consisting of DHC – 6 300 series Twin Otters, Britten Norman Islanders and a Citation Jet 3
