Air Jamaica New Daily Non-stop JFK/Barbados Service
has announced new daily non-stop service between John F. Kennedy International
Airport (JFK) in New York and GrantleyAdamsInternationalAirport
starting January 10, 2007. Caribbean Airlines' (formerly BWIA West Indies
Airways) move to discontinue its operations on this route led to Air Jamaica's
decision. Air Jamaica will
operate daily Airbus A-320 service from JFK to Barbados with 138 seats in Economy
Class and 12 in Executive Business Class. This service will continue to St. Lucia four days a week and to Grenada three
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 U.S. gateways in Atlanta,
Baltimore/Washington D.C., Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles,
Miami, New York
(JFK) and Philadelphia.
Effective January 1, 2007, the new Executive Business Class will replace First
Class on all routes. Visit www.airjamaica.com
