A new domestic air travel service, Jam Air, has begun operating from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. The airline began its operations in July filling a void that has seen no regularly scheduled domestic flights in Jamaica for the past seven years.
Jam Air currently services the destinations of Montego Bay, Kingston, Negril, and Ocho Rios with regularly scheduled service. The company also offers charter flights to all these destinations as well as Port Antonio and Treasure Beach.
Chief executive officer (CEO) of Jam Air, Howard Levy, said in the past month of operation the feedback from customers has been encouraging.
“The people that use the service say it is needed,” he stated. “It is a service that people have been longing for because there has been no regular service for some time now.”
Levy revealed that the airline is using a DHC-6-300 aircraft with a capacity of 19 seats to “build the route” and will shortly be adding a Dash 8 with a seating capacity of 37, as demand increases. The coming winter season will also see the arrival of additional aircraft.
