Gatwick Airport will soon get an extra weekly flight to the Caribbean island of Grenada.
The new flight, which is operated by Virgin Atlantic, will depart on Mondays, beginning on October 31st 2011.
"Gone are the days of rigid seven or fourteen night holidays, and the addition of another Virgin flight means Grenada provides UK travellers with greater flexibility such as ten night packages," Sharon Bernstein, Grenada Board of Tourism's general manager for UK and Ireland, said.
When the new flight begins operating, Gatwick Airport will offer five departures to the exotic locale every week, two of which will be operated by British Airways on Sundays and Tuesdays, two by Virgin Atlantic on Mondays and Thursdays and one by Monarch Airlines on Wednesday.
Travellers can now book the new Virgin Atlantic flight from the travel hub.
Those who decide to holiday on the island may want to visit its capital city, St George's, which has a pretty horseshoe shaped harbour and holds a carnival for a week in August each year.
