British Airways is launching a new flight route to Jamaica, the carrier announced this week.
BA will be launching a new route between London Gatwick and Montego Bay, Jamaica beginning Oct. 13.
“We’re excited to be extending our network once again between London Gatwick and the Caribbean with the start of this new flight to Montego Bay in October,” said Diane Corrie, British Airways’ commercial manager for the Caribbean. “We know people are keen to travel and the sunshine and beaches across the Caribbean combined with great resorts and entertainment makes it a winning destination.”
British Airways recently relaunched its flights to Barbados and Jamaica.
On July 25, the carrier will be relaunching service to Saint Lucia, with Antigua flights set to resume Aug. 1, with reduced frequencies, however.
“During these unprecedented times, Jamaica has implemented robust health protocols to ensure the wellbeing of all residents and visitors,” said Donovan White, the Jamaica Tourist Board’s Director of Tourism. “We’re delighted that British Airways has announced a twice weekly service to Montego Bay from London Gatwick, adding to its regular London Gatwick – Kingston service and further bolstering the number of flights from the UK to Jamaica.”
