Regional carrier SVG Air launched daily, roundtrip service between St. Lucia’s Hewanorra Airport and Canouan Island in the Grenadines.

The 20-minute flight departs St. Lucia at 4:15 p.m., allowing travelers from the mainland U.S. to connect from earlier flights arriving on American, Delta, JetBlue and US Airways.

From Canouan, the flight leaves at noon, in time for onward return flights to the U.S.

Canouan is home to Carenage Bay (the former Raffles resort) and Tamarind Beach Hotel & Yacht Club.
