CANOUAN, ST. VINCENT & THE GRENADINES — Private jet setters arrived at the Caribbean island of Canouan during the holidays in record numbers, according to an exlcusive interview with Elite Traveler. The island boasts a 5900ft runway after a recent extension making it accessible for virtually all private jets without payload restrictions.
“We have been delighted to welcome 123 private jets this December” stated Nelcia Hardaway-Herbert the General Manager of the Canouan Airport. “The popularity of this luxury destination to this specific market has been growing steadily over the last year. We peaked at 18 private jets on more than one day. It’s really very special to see guests arriving from as far afield as London on direct flights. There is virtually no private jet that can’t land here now.
With the luxurious Raffles Resort, Trump International Golf Club and the Grenadines Estate private villas, this 3.5s square mile island positions itself as “the ultimate luxury destination of the Caribbean.”
