Saint Vincent airport departures check-in
The island has to endure a lot from the corona virus. The island is highly dependent on tourism. There are SVD airport departures on the 9,000 feet runway to mainly regional destinations during the corona. Examples are Saint Lucia, Grenada and Bridgetown (Barbados) with Argyle arrivals from InterCaribbean Airways and One Caribbean. If everything resumes as before the corona, the airlines LIAT, Sunwing, SVG Air, Caribbean Airlines, American Airlines, Mustique Airways Air and Air Canada will undoubtedly be seen again.
There are several possibilities to buy items in the souvenir shops or books, electronics, liqueur, tobacco or food and drinks. The terminal has a capacity to transport 1.5 million passengers per year. With several commercial spaces, kiosks and some restaurants it’s a good place to stay when waiting for your flight.
