New flights set to add some spice to Grenada’s tourism industry

May 5, 2011Article by Ray Withers

Grenada, the Caribbean ‘Island of Spice’, is set to experience a tourism boom in the coming months due to the launch of the new Virgin Atlantic direct service from the UK.

As of 31st October 2011, transatlantic carrier, Virgin Atlantic, will be operating a new Monday and Thursday direct flight (already available to book) which will create a total of five UK departures from London Gatwick to Grenada each week with BA flights on Sunday and Tuesday and Monarch Airlines on Wednesday.

Grenada Board of Tourism General Manager UK & Ireland, Sharon Bernstein states,

“Gone are the days of rigid seven or fourteen night holidays, and the addition of another Virgin flight means Grenada provides UK travellers with greater flexibility such as ten night packages.”

Leading property investment agency, Property Frontiers, which markets one of the most popular residential developments on the island, the 5* Bacolet Bay Resort & Spa, comments,

“We are very pleased that these new flights have been launched and that even more Brits will have the opportunity to visit this jewel of the Caribbean. Grenada’s tourism industry continues to develop rapidly with visitors attracted to the white sandy beaches, year round superb climate and relaxed pace of life that the ‘spice island’ offers.

“The new flights will also offer more flexibility for those with second homes on the island allowing them and potential renters to visit at their leisure.”

Caribbean Residences at Bacolet Bay Resort & Spa is offering a unique opportunity to invest in one of the Caribbean’s most prestigious resorts from a total price of just £26,700. This low cost investment in a 5 star resort will generate a guaranteed 10% net income and offers excellent capital appreciation as well as the perfect tropical paradise for your own leisurely use.
