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 This has been replaced by the current airport in the south.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.
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. You can also rent a car at the airport at Y & R, Maitland, Hertz and Economy after your Grenada airport arrivals.
The airport has a 9,000 feet runway for all Grenada arrivals. The Maurice Bishop airport departures will take place on an asphalt surface. Despite corona, there are still flights with various airlines to regional and international destinations.
