Spirit Will Begin First Nonstop CT-Jamaica Service

Spirit Airlines is going to be the airline that pioneers nonstop service between Connecticut and Jamaica.
Spirit Airlines, the leading ultra-low-cost carrier in the United States, recently made the announcement that it will now be introducing a new non-stop service between the city of Montego Bay in Jamaica and the state of Connecticut in the northeastern part of the country. As a result, this service will be the very first airline to ever connect the city pair.

The economy will be given a boost as a result of the introduction of a new service that will fly nonstop between Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay and Bradley International Airport in Hartford. Because it provides the Jamaican diaspora in the state with more accessible, economical, and pleasant flying alternatives, the Sprit Airline is likely to be the preferred airline for VFR and tourist traffic.

In response to the news of this announcement, John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning for Spirit Airlines, said that the company is “eager to start our first ever international trip from Bradley International Airport.”

We are quite grateful for the cooperation we have with the airport, as well as the opportunity to expand our business since we began offering service in 2017.”

Spirit has made the announcement that this new service would be accessible all year long, commencing on December 15, 2022, and that there will be four flights each week between different city pairings.
This flight will be operated by one of the Airbus A320neo or A321neo aircraft that the airline has in its fleet.

Since there has been an increase in the number of people traveling as a result of the epidemic, Spirit Airlines has said that it is dedicated to make Connecticut a regional hub.

In preparation for the winter season, Spirit Airlines has announced that it would begin operating nonstop flights between Connecticut and Tampa as well as Fort Myers. In addition to the flights that now fly to Orlando, Miami, and Myrtle Beach, these new ones will also go there.

At the time when Spirit Airlines was making the announcement that they would be beginning service to Montego Bay, the Minister of Tourism for Jamaica, the Hon. Edmund Bartlett, CD, MP, expressed his enthusiasm by saying:

“We are excited about the new service that Spirit Airline will be providing from Connecticut to Montego Bay beginning in 2022–2023, which is just in time for the beginning of the winter tourist season.”

“This is a terrific complement to our airlift ambitions as we continue to work toward increasing the number of US visitors visiting Jamaica by providing additional gateways and improved seat support,” said Jamaican Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett.

“Our tourism industry is bouncing back at a very rapid speed, as seen by the record number of visitors and increased spending by tourists. Therefore, these numbers will improve, and a greater number of people will be drawn to Montego Bay, which is the tourist hub of Jamaica thanks to the introduction of the new service.

Throughout addition, there is a sizable and vibrant Jamaican population that may be found in the state of Connecticut.

On the other hand, a large number of Jamaicans make trips to Connecticut for a variety of reasons, including business and visiting family, and as a result, this service will be used by all of them.”

Since a very early stage, Jamaica has been an active participant in the development of tourism across the area. It is a popular tourist destination for people from North America, including the United States and Canada, as well as other Caribbean islands.

The fact that this access is available from the northeastern area of the nation makes it simpler for VFR pilots and visitors to investigate more flying alternatives.

Kevin A. Dillon, AAE, the Executive Director of Connecticut Airport, made the following statement together with a number of other partners and stakeholders:

To fulfill the requirements of our community, we have spent years working toward the goal of establishing nonstop service between Jamaica and Bradley International Airport.

We are overjoyed that we were finally able to realize our goal with Spirit’s assistance.”

“I have no doubt that this service will be successful, and I am glad that Bradley Airport will finally be able to provide this seamless connection for the state’s significant Jamaican community, as well as for their friends and family,”

In the end, Mr. John Kirby had the following to say about the announcement of this exciting new service for the passengers who have appreciated his company:

“Since 2005, we have had the honor of providing our services to Jamaica, and we have wonderful teams both here in Connecticut and in Montego Bay. More Go is something that we can’t wait to provide to our customers.
