Jamaica Expands Winter Nonstop Flights

Frequent nonstop flights and increased seasonal service from major U.S. gateways continue to make Jamaica an ideal and accessible destination for travelers this winter. Airline, tour and charter operators servicing Jamaica are supplementing nonstop service from most major gateways in the United States, with a projected increase of over 13,000 air seats compared to last year.
