About Maurice Bishop International Airport

In the past, the airport was still called Point Salines Airport. It is located near St. George’s at Point Salines. The new name is named after Maurice Bishop who was Prime Minister on the island in the Caribbean in the past. There used to be the main airport of the island called Pearls Airport in the north. This has been replaced by the current airport in the south. The first commercial passenger planes landed in 1984. There is 1 runway with a length of 9,000 feet allowing large aircraft to land.

Airport location

Grenada flight departures will be south of the capital Saint Georges at the southernmost tip of the island. There are some other small airports for Grenada flight arrivals, but these are very small and cannot handle large planes. The airport is 5 miles from the city and can be easily reached by taxi. Most hotels are located in the southwest of the island near the airport. Taxi fares range from $15-25 (local money $35-60) in that region. If you want to travel all the way to the St.Patrick area in the north by taxi, you should expect to pay $65 US (local $170).

You can also rent a car at the airport at Y & R, Maitland, Hertz and Economy after your Grenada airport arrivals. Rental cars are widely available to easily explore the island.

If you want to park the car at the airport next to the terminal, there are costs involved. The first hour of parking costs EC$2.30. Every hour after that is EC$1.15. Please note that you are not allowed to park for more than 5 hours.
