Featured JAMAICA opens in June? Flights resume to the United States
KINGSTON,  Saturday May 30, 2020 – A number of United States based airlines are set to operate flights out of Jamaica to the United States starting next week, according to a post on the US Embassy's Twitter page.

The information says American Airlines will operate daily flights from Kingston to Miami starting June 4. In addition, the airline will also have daily flights from Montego Bay to Miami and Charlotte also starting on Thursday.

The Embassy says United Airlines will operate weekly Saturday flights from Montego Bay to Newark Liberty International Airport starting on June 6

Earlier this week, in a post on her Facebook page, Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States, Audrey Markes, said discussions were underway with the various airlines for regular commercial flights to resume in June for returning Jamaicans.

Jamaica’s top diplomat to Washington advised: “So if you have a valid ticket to travel to Jamaica in June, we advise you to keep that booking.

If you do not yet have a ticket, you may await the flight schedules so you can pick a convenient travel date accordingly,” Markes said.

She said for persons planning to travel from Atlanta Georgia (ATL), John F. Kennedy in New York, (JFK) or from Baltimore Washington International (BWI), and persons preferring home quarantine, these protocols are now being finalized.
