Air Jamaica upgrades inflight product

5th Jul 2006

This month Air Jamaica has unveiled exciting product upgrades on board its A340 aircraft on the London - Jamaica route, with the introduction of a brand new Deluxe Economy Class with sleeperette seats and flat beds in Business Class for the first time.
Now in its tenth year on this route, Air Jamaica continues to invest in delivering the highest levels of service for its passengers.

The carrier has dropped First Class, with its aircraft now in a 12 / 14 / 252 configuration in Executive Business Class, Deluxe Economy Class and Economy Class.

This means Executive Business Class passengers are offered flat beds for the first time with an 84 inch seat pitch, and there is a brand new Deluxe Economy Class in a dedicated cabin between business and economy with reclining sleeperette seats in a generous 60 inch seat pitch.

Both Executive Business Class and Deluxe Economy Class passengers are provided with dedicated check-in areas and a tasty meal service with complimentary champagne, wines, spirits and beer.

The Economy Class continues to offer 252 seats in a comfortable eight abreast configuration with a 34 inch seat pitch. Air Jamaica’s ‘Red Carpet’ treatment includes a choice of meals with complimentary wines, spirits and Red Stripe beer and its unique in-flight aerobics.


Michael Conway, Air Jamaica’s Chief Executive, said, ‘We are delighted to announce the product upgrades on our London - Jamaica service.

We have introduced the new Deluxe Economy Class to meet customer demand for more space at lower prices and we believe it will be very popular.

Air Jamaica has gone from strength to strength over the last ten years, and despite the current challenging and competitive environment, 2005 was our busiest ever year on the UK route, with an average load factor of 81%.’

With one of the youngest fleets in the western hemisphere, Air Jamaica is the only scheduled carrier to fly direct to both Montego Bay and Kingston from London Heathrow on a daily basis.

Air Jamaica is currently offering return economy class flights from £566.60, deluxe economy class flights from £966.60 and business class flights from £1,386.60 per person, including all taxes, fees and charges.
