Re: Caribbean Aviation Thread - 2020

that some countries may use when weighing the economic benefits of trying to open their economies. I know Grenada has done so as it tries to open the yachting industry, though visitors do have to remain quarantined for 14 days regardless of the results, afterwhich they are tested again.

Re: Caribbean Aviation Thread - 2020

Re: Caribbean Aviation Thread - 2020

Hundreds of SGU students are leaving Grenada due to coronavirus concerns in chartered planes. Some left yesterday and more are leaving today (Saturday). One charter airline is Eastern to MIA and as I write this there is a Swift Air 737 en-route to YYZ. https://www.thenewtodaygrenada.com/local-news/...

I thought AA's fleet plan was updated so that all 763s will be gone by the end of 2020(?)
