Michael McIntyre, chairman of the Grenada Airlift Committee, said the airline will suspend flights between Sept. 1 and Dec. 15 this year due to fewer arrivals during that time. The high tourist season lasts from Dec. 15 to April 15.

McIntyre said the country will save more than $100,000 due to the seasonal flight suspensions because it will not have to pay “airline support” fees to Delta. Tourists and other travelers could easily use other airlines, he said
