In line with its ongoing commitment to help the people of the Caribbean recover from Hurricane Ivan, Air Jamaica operated the first flights back to the island just one day after the storm had passed. Air Jamaica service to Montego Bay resumed on a limited basis on Sunday, September 12, 2004. Air Jamaica resumed service to Kingston just one day later.
Air Jamaica’s first flight back to Kingston was stocked with more than 30,000 pounds of relief supplies valued at US$100,000.
Air Jamaica teamed with the U.S. Embassy in Kingston, the Jamaica Consulate General and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in this effort.
