United Starting New Nonstop Flights to Jamaica

Chicago area residents will
enjoy speedy access to Jamaica with the launch of twice-weekly, nonstop
United Airlines service beginning December 18, 2004, just in time for the
busy winter travel season. Scheduled for weekends, this will be United
Airlines’ first nonstop service available from Chicago, its major hub,
into Jamaica; excellent connections to feeder cities in the U.S. add
further convenience. The outbound United Airlines flight will depart Chicago on Saturdays and
Sundays at 8:30 a.m. and arrive in Montego Bay at 1:37 p.m. Returning from
Jamaica, the flight will depart on Saturdays and Sundays at 2:35 p.m. and
arrive in Chicago at 5:58 p.m.

“We are extremely excited to partner with United Airlines, the second
largest carrier in the world, on its first ever nonstop service out of
Chicago to Montego Bay, which will provide easy access for visitors and
for Jamaicans returning home,” commented Paul Pennicook, Director of
Tourism for Jamaica. “We welcome the influx of visitors this new service
will bring to Jamaica and look forward to a mutually beneficial
relationship with United Airlines.”

Service to Montego Bay will be launched in conjunction with United
Vacations, which has created vacation packages for each of these
destinations. For more information on United Airlines schedules and fares,
