JetBlue is significantly ramping up its flight service to Montego Bay, Jamaica. 

By July 2022, the carrier will have 40 percent more seats between the United States and Montego Bay than it did before the pandemic began. 

The announcement come after a meeting between Jamaica Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett and JetBlue executives in New York. 

Jamaica was one of the first tourism destinations to reopen after the onset of the pandemic.

“We continue to see positive signs of a strong recovery for Jamaica’s tourism and more seats mean more arrivals which ultimately will give us more earnings for the country,” Bartlett said. “Jamaica is perhaps the most connected destination in the region, and this has helped us to attract more visitors. We have been focused and always looking ahead even in the midst of the worst of the pandemic. We are now reaping the rewards.”

The island recently lifted all of its pre-testing requirements for travelers

“We are grateful for our partners like JetBlue who will be integral in our recovery strategy, so this is very good news for the destination. JetBlue has reinforced its partnership with Jamaica as a core part of its Caribbean operations. The airline also welcomed the lifting of pre arrival COVID testing and travel authorization which it says has helped with the increase in interest in Jamaica.” said Donovan White, Director of Tourism, Jamaica.

Jamaica has been one of the Caribbean’s best-performing destinations in the pandemic era, particularly of late, driven by strong performance from the United States market, which accounted for nearly 87 percent of visitors to the island last year.
