There will be even easier access to popular tourist spot Ocho Rios, Jamaica, as of this November. That’s when American Airlines will offer two weekly non-stop flights between the Miami International Airport and the Ian Fleming International Airport.
The flights, offered on Wednesdays and Saturdays, will be operated by an Envoy E-175 aircraft, which can seat between 76 and 88 passengers in business and economy.
“This is a very valuable addition to the aviation needs of Jamaica, with non-stop service between the United States and our country’s third international airport. It is a great start and will encourage other airlines to fly into the Oracabessa/Ocho Rios area. It will also be a huge plus to the region and also assist greatly in boosting tourism development potential for St Mary and Portland and connecting many members of our Diaspora closer to home,” said Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett.
American Airlines is the world’s largest airline when measured by fleet size, scheduled passengers carried, and revenue passenger mile and is the largest mover of people in and out of Jamaica. The airline operates multiple daily non-stop flights between several US cities including Miami, Philadelphia, New York JFK, Dallas, Charlotte, Chicago, Boston and Jamaica.
