New Air Jamaica Service for Barbados
On Wednesday, January 10th 2007, Air Jamaica began a new daily service between New York and Barbados.
Chairman of the Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA), Mr. Peter Odle informed that “The BTA approached Air Jamaica and they responded in the way that we hoped they would and we are hoping that it is going to be a long term partnership for Barbados.”
Air Jamaica will operate a daily Airbus A-320 service between John F. Kennedy International (JFK) Airport in New York and Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados. This service will continue to St. Lucia four (4) days a week and to Grenada three (3) days a week. This new schedule will also offer daily direct service to Montego Bay, Jamaica via St. Lucia or Grenada, offering further connections to and from Air Jamaica’s US gateways in Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington DC, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Miami, New York (JFK) and Philadelphia.
