Grenada postpones welcome for new Canadian flight

Grenada officials declined to rise before dawn to greet an inaugural flight from Canada, and now the island's tourism board chairman is demanding explanations.

Richard Strachan says he is investigating why no one received the 90 passengers including a Grenada diplomat and top officials with Sunwing Airlines.

The plane also was forced to circle an extra 30 minutes over the tiny eastern Caribbean island because the daily runway inspection had not been completed.

Tourism marketing director Raylene Lazarus said Tuesday that the tourism board and airline had previously agreed to a new welcoming event for the flight route.

Grenada is seeking more visitors to boost its tourism-dependent economy.
