From July 2 to August 30, 2009, Air Jamaica will operate twice weekly service between New York and Barbados. This is in response to the expected demand by Barbadian nationals in the tri-state area travelling home for the summer.
“We are of course very happy that Air Jamaica has made the commitment of these flights,” Barbadian Minister of Tourism, Richard Sealy, told JIS News.
“Barbadians who live outside of the island look forward to vacationing at home. We are thrilled at Air Jamaica’s move in making it easy for them and all visitors to our island to travel during this period,” he added.
The flights will depart John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) on Thursday and Sunday at 12:50 a.m. and arrive in Barbados at 5:00 a.m. The return flight will depart Barbados at 6:30 a.m. and arrive at JFK at 11:30 a.m.
“This is a great opportunity for Air Jamaica to serve the Caribbean and we know these flights will have a huge impact. Our schedule allows passengers to arrive in Barbados early in the morning, so they will enjoy the entire day with friends and family,” Air Jamaica’s Senior Director of Sales George deMercado, told JIS News.
