Air Jamaica will start eight weekly non-stop flights between New York’s JFK International Airport and the island of Grenada starting from February 23, 2006.

President and CEO, Mike Conway said, “The route has been performing exceptionally and an increase in service is good for Air Jamaica and Grenada. We are most pleased to be adding this service that coincides with Grenada’s tourism recovery.” He added, “As the airline moves to improve productivity through better utilisation of its existing fleet, all feasible opportunities for expansion throughout the Caribbean are being looked at carefully”.
Chairman, O.K. Melhado announced that Air Jamaica is forging closer ties with Caribbean Star Airlines in order to give passengers easier access to the other islands that fall outside of its route network.
