On May 28, Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines launched its inaugural flight from Miami to Montego Bay.
“We’re thrilled to launch nonstop flights from Miami to Montego Bay right in time for summer vacation,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial, Frontier Airlines.
“The addition of Jamaica boosts Frontier’s robust network map to 33 nonstop routes from MIA, our largest summer schedule ever in Miami. We look forward to welcoming travelers onboard for an unforgettable trip to Jamaica this summer to explore its marvelous culture, activities and picture-perfect views.”
Jamaica’s Consul General for Southern USA, Oliver Mair was part of the ribbon-cutting team at the launch in Miami-Dade County.
The new non-stop service will fly three times weekly into Montego Bay, departing Monday, Friday, and Saturday.
“Congratulations to Frontier on launching the first of many new routes it will begin serving at MIA this summer, which will help to further strengthen the ongoing recovery of our local tourism industry,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
“I am also extremely pleased to see additional flights to and from Jamaica, a country with which we share so many cultural ties, and one of the busiest destinations for our residents and visitors to Miami-Dade County.”
The Jamaica Tourist Board says with the demand for travel surfacing, the flights will greatly increase the accessibility to Jamaica from the island’s largest tourism market, the United States.
“Jamaica is abuzz with activity, and we are ready to safely welcome travelers to our beautiful island nation to experience its unmatched offerings,” said Jamaica’s Director of Tourism Donovan White. “The summer travel season is an ideal time to reconnect with family and friends, and we’re excited to welcome visitors from all walks of life to make new memories in Jamaica.”
Jamaica is now the sixth country in Frontier’s route map. The flights will start at an introductory rate of $99.
