American Airlines is to open another new route from South Florida to the Caribbean this fall when the airline begins nonstop service from Miami to the southern Caribbean island of Grenada.
American will begin flying between Miami and Grenada on 20 November 2008, using Boeing 737-800 aircraft configured with 16 seats in First Class and 132 seats in the Main Cabin.
The new service complements existing flights to Grenada from San Juan, Puerto Rico, offered by American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines.
Known as the “Spice of the Caribbean” for the abundance of spices the island produces, Grenada is also well-regarded for its cool sea breezes, unhurried pace, picturesque towns, lush rain forests, stunning beaches, and exquisite coral reefs.
“Visitors to Grenada can expect to experience some of the best that the Caribbean has to offer, including lovely scenery, magnificent weather, relaxing beaches, lively culture, and a wide variety of activities,” said the Hon. Clarice Modeste Curwen, Grenada’s Minister of Tourism. “We welcome American’s nonstop service from Miami, just as we welcome all those who come to see and enjoy the Caribbean of their dreams.”
