Beginning December 18, American Airlines will debut new non-stop service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Sangster International Airport (MBJ) in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
American is the only carrier to offer nonstop service from the West Coast to Jamaica.
Presently, it operates 150 daily flights to more than 30 Caribbean destinations from hubs in Miami, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Charlotte, Philadelphia and more. With the addition of LAX, American now offers 58 weekly flights (combined) to Montego Bay and Kingston from the airline’s combined travel hubs.
The new service between LAX and MBJ (travel time is just under six hours) will be aboard a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, configured with 16 seats in First Class and 144 seats in the main cabin.
This year, American has shown continued growth in Latin America and the Caribbean, with new routes to Mexico City, Mazatlan, Belize City, and now Montego Bay. This week, the airline will debut its daily non-stop service to Sydney on Thursday, December 17.
