SVG Air launches St. Lucia-Canouan service
By: Gay Nagle Myers
July 21, 2010

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.

75 miles in 20 minutes (including extra mileage for departure and approach) has to be something faster... over 230 knots. Right now I have no idea what equipment that would be.

Weren't they leasing a BE99 from that miserable American Canadian accountant and "airline management expert" who went bust in all the airlines he got involved with? (TIA2000, Carib, etc.)
