JAMAICA ENJOYS INCREASED AIRLIFT FROM DELTA AIR LINES
Delta to Increase Daily Service from Atlanta to Montego Bay This Winter
Jamaica will enjoy increased airlift from Delta Air Lines on its Atlanta/Montego Bay route beginning this winter. Starting December 20, 2008, travelers will have three daily flights to select from when flying to Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport (MBJ) from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). The Atlanta gateway allows for connection from all primary U.S. gateways to Montego Bay.
“Delta Air Lines is one of Jamaica’s strong air partners in the Southeast, continuing to meet growing consumer demand for flights to the island,” said Basil Smith, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “The increase in flights to Jamaica, during a time when many airlines are decreasing existing routes, shows the continuing popularity of the destination.”
Following are details on the daily flights between ATL and MBJ:
Atlanta at 8:30 a.m.
Montego Bay at 11:24 a.m.
Montego Bay at 12:14 p.m.

Additionally, Delta will offer service to Montego Bay from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport resuming on December 20, 2008.
In addition to increased airlift, Jamaica is also experiencing growth of its on-island tourism product. New hotel rooms are coming on board with the construction of new hotels, including Palmyra Resort & Spa and the Fiesta Group’s Grand Palladium Hotel, and new attractions, such as the recently opened Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios, will appeal to travelers of all ages.
