AIR Jamaica has suspended flights to Baltimore but added new flights to other United States destinations New York and Toronto while reintroducing its service to Nassau in the Bahamas.

The airline, recently divested by Government to Caribbean airlines, said that aircraft presently flying to Baltimore will be reallocated to more profitable routes. The service will be suspended July 1.

“In developing the new schedule we placed a lot of emphases on making flight times convenient, and we are sure this will prove a big win with our customers,” said president and chief executive officer Bruce Nobles.

Air Jamaica’s summer schedule, also beginning July 1, is as follows:

  • 5 daily flights to New York
  • 4 daily flights to Fort Lauderdale
  • 2 daily flights to Toronto
  • Daily flights to Philadelphia
  • Daily flights to Nassau

Air Jamaica’s service to New York offers two daily flights from Montego Bay and three daily flights from Kingston including, the Nitebird which departs Kingston at 12:15 am, arriving in New York at 5:00 am.

The additional daily flight between Kingston and Toronto will depart Kingston at 1:25 am. Passengers destined for Kingston will also have the option of an early arrival.
