Travelling by plane

Numerous airlines offer flights to Grenada. From Frankfurt am Main (FRA) flights are available from November during the whole year once a week with Condor (DE), which flies directly to Grenada (GND) and back. The flight time is about eleven hours one-way. 

British Airways (BA) offers flights twice a week from Germany via London Gatwick (LGW) to Grenada. 
U.S. carriers like American Airlines (AA) or U.S. Airways (U.S.) offer flights from the U.S. partly via Puerto Rico. In addition, there are a number of flights between the various Caribbean islands with smaller national or regional airlines, such as Air Jamaica, BWIA, Caribbean Star or LIAT.

International flights with large commercial aircrafts land at Point Salines International Airport (GND), a few miles from St. George's. The airport opens daily from 5am to 11pm.

From Point Salines you may continue your journey to the small Lauriston International Airport (CRU) in Carriacou. 
SVG Air is also served by direct flights from St. Vincent (the main island of the northern neighboring state) and TIA from Barbados. 



Therefore it is also called "international". Usually little machines from Grenada land on a runway, which is crossed by a road. So is an aircraft about to land, the cars must wait a short time. And in the evening the taxi driver put on their full beam, so that pilots have a better sight at the runway. 

Guests leaving Grenada by air have to pay a departure tax of EC $ 50 (approx € 15) at the airport wages in cash (except for Condor passengers, because the airline already included the tax in the ticket fares). Children between the ages of 5 and 12 pay half and the very young guests are exempt from tax. Travelers ages 5 and up, departing from Carriacou to Grenada must pay a security charge of EC $ 10 (about € 3).
