Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister, Hon. Yolande Bain–Horsford, is leading a delegation comprising Chairman of the airlift committee, Glynn Evans, and General Manager of the Grenada Airports Authority, Ms Wendy Williams, to Trinidad for a one-day meeting with Caribbean Airlines officials.
Since late last year, direct flights from Canada and the United States have been significantly affected because of the airline’s decision to reroute its flights through Trinidad.
The intention of the meeting is to re-negotiate with Caribbean Airlines to increase direct regional and international flights to Grenada.
While in Trinidad, Minister Bain-Horsford will also pay a courtesy visit to her counterpart Minister, Hon. Sampha Cudjoe to hold discussions on collaborative civil aviation and tourism efforts.
The delegation is expected to be back on the island on Tuesday, 16 February.
