How to Reach Saint George's by Airplane

There is no easier way to get to St. George's than to fly

Not only is Saint George's the capital city of Grenada, but it also serves as the hub of all forms of transportation around the island – including air travel. The island's one and only airport is located right within city limits, making all of the area's top resorts easily accessible by visitors.

The Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) is just about 15 minutes away from the major resort area of the town, a great perk for anyone who is going to be staying in the area. The airport has two asphalt runways and five arrival gates, which helps to keep traffic moving smoothly and at a steady pace throughout the day. Once inside the terminal, tourists have access to several restaurants and shops to keep them busy while they wait.

International air travel is available to this island with nonstop flights from London, Toronto, Miami, and New York on a regular basis. For tourists who don't leave near to these locations, connecting flights are not hard to come by, often through other islands in the Caribbean.
