InterCaribbean Airways is launching new service between Kingston and Montego Bay, Jamaica.
The service will include 16 weekly flights each way, with the Montego Bay-Kingston flights offering onward flights to Providenciales, Santo Domingo and San Juan.
InterCaribbean will be operating the service on 30-seat Embraer 120 aircraft, with flights set to start on April 16.
“I am thrilled that there will be new scheduled air service between Kingston and Montego Bay,” said John Lynch, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism, in a statement. “The service will be particularly helpful for travellers from the UK and Europe as there will be a seamless connection to get them into either city. Passengers on airlines like Southwest, which do not fly into Kingston, will also be facilitated.”
Trevor Sadler, CEO of InterCaribbean Airways, said the new service was the culmination of “years of effort” by Chairman Lyndon Gardiner.
InterCaribbean Airways is the former Air Turks and Caicos; the carrier rebranded itself last year.
