Sunrise Airways said it anticipates receiving final clearance from the Jamaican Civil Aviation Authority by September 1 for the launch of its new Jamaica flights during the fall of 2016.
“Our journey to this point has been long, with some minor turbulence endured along the way, but I’m very pleased to say that we are now, indeed, on final approach to spread our wings to Jamaica this fall,” said Philippe Bayard, president of Sunrise Airways, in a written release.
Building upon its initial plan to serve the Kingston–Port-au-Prince route, Sunrise has vastly expanded its commitment to the Jamaica market.
“Our current application to the Jamaican Civil Aviation Authority features a total of 25 possible new routes,” said Bayard. “Unique to our plan, Sunrise intends to be the only airline serving all three of Jamaica’s international gateways – Norman Manley in Kingston, Sangster International in Montego Bay, and Ian Flemming International Airport in Ocho Rios – with overseas flights.”
