Increasing Numbers Of Flights To Jamaica From Various Us Cities

This week, representatives from Delta Airlines informed members of the leadership of the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) that the carrier would expand the country’s aircraft seat capacity for the 2022/23 season by more than one percent in comparison to the same time in the pre-pandemic 2019/20 season.

Officials said that between 2022 and 2023, Delta resumed its regular service to Jamaica by flying from Detroit and Minneapolis on a daily basis for the first time since the beginning of the epidemic.

Delta’s extended service was described as “a clear vote of confidence in the continued recovery of tourism to Jamaica” by Donovan White, the director of tourism for the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB).

In addition to this, he said that “This is a clear message from one of our most key airline partners that we are well on our path to increase our stopover arrivals above 2019, which was the year when we had the most stopover guests ever.”

The Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay may be reached without a stop by Delta flights departing from Boston, Minneapolis, New York, and Atlanta. The Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston can be reached from Atlanta by numerous weekly departures on Delta flights.

In the beginning of this month, officials from JetBlue informed members of the Jamaican government and tourism officials that the airline will provide forty percent more seats between the United States and Montego Bay in the year 2022 than it did in the same month in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Edmund Bartlett, the minister of tourism for Jamaica, recently said that “we continue to see optimistic signals of a solid resurgence for Jamaica’s tourism,” and that “more seats” means “more visitors.”

“Jamaica is undoubtedly the most linked destination in the area,” Bartlett remarked after the previous statement. “As a result of this, we have seen an increase in the number of visitors.” Even through the most difficult parts of the epidemic, we have maintained our composure and continued to look to the future. We are now enjoying the fruits of our labor.
