More United Kingdom-based air carriers are serving Jamaica this season.
That includes a total of at least 16 flights per week beginning later this month, according to Jamaica Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett.
“We have had very good engagements with our key partners in the UK and have reassured them of Jamaica’s readiness for them and our safety as a destination, with a less than one percent Covid infection rate on the Resilient Corridor,” Bartlett said following a meeting at London’s World Travel Market. “Additionally, I am happy to see airline seat capacity between the UK and Jamaica at around 100 percent of what it was pre-Covid when we were on a very strong growth path. We are very serious about action and strong results, and I am pleased with what we are achieving so far.”
The flights include service on TUI, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
TUI is operating six flights a week, with Virgin set to increase to five flights per week and British Airways set to operate five per week as well.
That includes flights running out of London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham.
