Flights Between U.S. & Jamaica Have Announced By Delta
In the week that, Delta Air Lines provided more evidence that the tourism sector is on the road to recovery after the epidemic by announcing that the carrier has increased the number of seats available on flights to Jamaica for the 2022-2023 season.
Given that the pandemic had not yet begun at the time, it is surprising that this modification would result in an increase of almost 1 percent in seat capacity beginning with the 2019/2020 season.
This week, the information was sent to the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB).
Delta will not only boost the number of seats available but will also resume some of the flights between Detroit and Jamaica and Minneapolis and Jamaica that were suspended due of the epidemic.
Donovan White, director of tourism at JTB, shared JTB’s excitement on Delta’s news. According to him, this demonstrates “a clear vote of confidence” in Jamaica’s resurgence as a popular tourist destination.
White is also of the opinion that the leadership at Delta has taken note of how successfully Jamaica has recovered so far. When compared to 2019, which delivered the highest number of stopover arrivals the island nation has ever seen, the current year has witnessed a significant rise in the number of people making the journey.
There are currently a number of non-stop flights offered by Delta to the Sangster International Airport in Jamaica. The following are the places from which they depart:
The City of New York,
In addition, the airline operates many direct flights each week from Atlanta to the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, Jamaica. These flights arrive and depart from the same airport.
Not just Delta but also other airlines are contributing to the rise in the number of visits to Jamaica. JetBlue representatives have notified the nation’s authorities that the airline would significantly enhance its seat capacity by the month of July throughout the whole country.
As a result of the expansion of capacity, forty percent more passengers will be able to go to Jamaica in comparison to the same month in 2019.
Edmund Bartlett, who serves as Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, has said that the island’s remarkable travel connection is one of the reasons it is so popular with visitors.
