Formerly known as Port Salines International Airport, Maurice Bishop International Airport is located on Point Salines, about 8km (5 miles) south of the town of St George’s on the island of Grenada.
Grenada’s airport has a colourful history as the hub of the US military invasion of the island in 1983. Since then, the Grenadian government has expanded the airport as an important piece of tourism infrastructure. In 2009 it was renamed for the late Prime Minister who oversaw the expansion. While the airport is still tiny by international standards, it wins rave reviews for its friendly and helpful staff and efficient service.
Flights to Maurice Bishop International Airport come from the Caribbean (Barbados, San Juan, Port of Spain, St Vincent and Canouan); North America (Toronto, Miami and New York); and Europe (London).
