As Jamaica’s tourism officials celebrate United Airlines’ decade-long service to the island, they are thrilled to welcome the introduction of two new gateways: Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and the Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD). These two gateways will operate Saturdays only into the destination’s tourism capital, Montego Bay (MBJ).
"We are pleased with the continued partnership with United Airlines," said John Lynch, Jamaica's director of tourism, in a written release. “Their decade of dedicated service to Jamaica has introduced new travelers to the destination. We look forward to the increased service from Chicago and Washington, D.C., which are two key consumer markets for us. We also look forward to many more years of a successful collaboration.”
Chicago flights depart at 10:22 a.m. and arrive in Montego Bay at 3:18 p.m. while departing flights leave Montego Bay at 1:20 p.m. and arrive in Chicago at 4:39 p.m. Washington D.C. flights depart at 8:44 a.m. and arrive in Montego Bay at 12:25 p.m. while departing flights leave Montego Bay at 4:15 p.m. and arrive back in Washington D.C. at 7:37 p.m.
In addition to the new gateways, United Airlines offers service between Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey and Houston Intercontinental Airport in Texas to Montego Bay.
