Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister, Glynis Roberts, has said that airline service to Grenada is “coming along nicely,’’ especially for the summer when the country will be hosting Spicemas, the annual carnival celebration.

The theme of carnival 2010, which will be officially launched June 12, is: “We Playin’ Ah Wicked Mas.’’ It culminates August 9 and 10.

The travel needs of would-be visitors are being met through a series of formal arrangements between government and airline officials, as well as with non-government private charters.

Air Jamaica, whose majority owners are now Caribbean Airlines, is returning to Grenada from New York after cutting the route a few months ago.

Hon. Roberts, in an interview with the Government Information Services, said she is particularly looking forward to next month’s the start of Delta’s year-round flights into Grenada.

Government is also in talks with Virgin Airlines, West Jet and Air Canada, she announced.
