Flying High: New International Airport In St. Vincent Finally Opens

Updated: Apr 16

The most anticipated airport project in the Caribbean is finally complete. Argyle International Airport (AIA) on the island of St. Vincent received its first-ever flights on February 14th after an eight-year construction process.

Four chartered aircrafts, including one Caribbean Airlines flight out of New York City and a Sunwing Airlines flight out of Toronto, made direct inaugural journeys to St. Vincent and The Grenadines .

These flights were historic —marking the first time that wide body aircrafts as large as Boeing 747-400’s —could land on the island, thanks to a 9,000-foot runway.

The building of Argyle International Airport is largest capital project in the island’s history. The $240 million development was financed by St. Vincent’s government with loans, donations and grants from several countries including Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela and Taiwan.
