Grenada Rocks- A Storytelling Campaign

St. George’s, Grenada W.I. – 3rd March, 2021 – Grenada’s latest campaign ‘Grenada Rocks’, puts the storytelling of the tri-island destination’s authenticity and wonders in the hands of the experts, the beloved Grenadian people! The campaign, launched on Monday March 1st introduces a cast of Grenadians on island and in the Diaspora, who speak of how Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique ‘rock’ as a multifaceted nation with diverse experiences.

The first phase of the campaign features recording artist Jevaughn John ‘V’ghn’ and international fashion designer of Grenadian descent, Fe Noel. Her designs have been worn by former US first lady Michelle Obama and Beyonce. Fans of Grenada can also look forward to a colourful presentation of Grenada’s National dish, Oildown and its deep cultural significance.

Chairman of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) Barry Collymore views the campaign launch as an important opportunity for Grenada’s Tourism. “Grenada has managed the COVID-19 pandemic very well and as more of the world reopens to travel, it is going to be critical to tell the story of our people moving forward, to build demand for our safe destination,” he said.

Speaking on the focus of the storytelling campaign, Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Climate Resilience and the Environment, Hon. Dr. Clarice Modeste-Curwen said, “The genuine warmth of our people is talked and written about all over the world. Our fashion designers, entertainers, musicians, farmers and tour guides all have a powerful story to tell about how Grenada has shaped their lives. These are the stories, experiences and connections that today’s traveler is seeking.”

‘Grenada Rocks’ has come to fruition because of the contributions,  hard work and love of the Grenadian people, and the GTA looks forward to it being a global success. The GTA will release its series of videos in the coming weeks and encourages everyone to share the campaign videos, as well as their personal ‘Grenada stories’ using the hashtag #GrenadaRocks.

British Airways Adds New Flights for London to Saint Lucia

LONDON, February 13, 2020 – The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority is delighted to confirm the introduction of additional British Airways direct flights from the UK to Saint Lucia.

The two additional weekly flights from London Gatwick (LGW) to Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) on Wednesdays and Saturdays will increase the ease of access to one of the Caribbean’s most popular destinations bringing the total to nine British Airways flights per week across the winter schedule.

The additional services will commence operation on October 28, 2020 and run until March 27, 2021 with no onward tag.

The decision by British Airways to increase the flights comes as Saint Lucia closed 2019 with over 400,000 stay-over arrivals.  For the period January to December 2019, Saint Lucia recorded 423,736 stay-over visitors; the highest in the island’s history.

The UK figures for the year are up 6.2% totalling 83,677 visitors. UK holidaymakers lead the way in terms of duration of stay average at 10.76 nights per visit.

Tourism Minister, Honourable Dominic Fedee commenting on the added services stated; “The increased services from the UK market provides travelers with even more options of getting to Saint Lucia. British Airways is one of the biggest airlines to the Caribbean out of London and we celebrate the extension of this new service to Saint Lucia.”

Director of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority UK & Europe, Patricia Charlery-Leon said: “We are absolutely thrilled that British Airways has added these flights. We have a longstanding partnership with the airline and the UK team and want to thank them for their support of Saint Lucia. British Airways has already added additional flights this summer so these new winter flights will help us to continue our momentum during our high season.”

Flying Boing 777 aircraft, the long-haul BA flights will depart London Gatwick (LGW)at 12:20 (GMT) to arrive at Hewanorra International (UVF)at 17:15 on Wednesdays and then again on Saturdays to allow for better connections.
