Jamaica Receives New Nonstop Service From American Airlines

Jamaica has welcomed American Airlines' move to begin new non-stop air service from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) to Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport (MBJ) starting June 4, 2022. 

American Airlines will operate these non-stop Saturday flights utilizing a 76-seat Embraer ERJ-175 aircraft with 12 first class, 20 main cabin extra and 44 main cabin seats.

“We are very pleased to grow our valued partnership with American Airlines, the largest commercial passenger airline flying to Jamaica, through this new route,” said Donovan White, director of tourism, Jamaica, in a press release. “The new non-stop flight from Austin complements the carrier’s existing service out of Dallas Fort Worth and offers yet another convenient option for travelers to get to our island as of this summer.”

Francine Carter Henry, tour operator and airlines manager, Jamaica Tourist Board, added, “It’s wonderful to see our long-standing partnership with American Airlines keep growing. We are looking forward to seeing more visitors arrive into Montego Bay with these new flights.”

Celebrating 45 years of service to Jamaica in 2022, American Airlines operates multiple daily non-stop flights to the destination from several U.S. cities including Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), Philadelphia (PHL), Chicago (ORD), Boston (BOS), Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW, and Charlotte (CLT).

As of November 2021, American Airlines started utilizing a 787-8 Dreamliner for operations on flights to Montego Bay (MBJ) from their major city hubs of Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Miami (MIA), and Philadelphia (PHL).
