A New Way to Fly to Jamaica

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 25, 2021

Fast-expanding carrier Frontier Airlines is adding another new route to one of the Caribbean’s most popular destinations.

Beginning Dec. 17, the low-cost carrier will kick off three weekly flights from Newark Liberty International Airport to Montego Bay, Jamaica.

It’s part of a growing wave of new airlift to the island, which is seeing a full-fledged tourism recovery after first reopening in June of last year.

That includes new flights on the way from carriers like Virgin Atlantic and American Airlines, with the latter set to launch its first-ever service from Philadelphia to Kingston in the first week of November.

And it also includes new flights from Atlanta to Montego Bay set to kick off in November.

Frontier has been adding more flights to the Caribbean than any other carrier amid the pandemic, from source markets like Newark to its growing presence at Miami International Airport.

Indeed, Frontier launched its first-ever Miami-Jamaica flights in May 2021.
