Air Jamaica stops flights to Miami again
Air Jamaica recently announced the suspension of its flights to Miami again. The airline had re-introduced its Miami flights on December 9, 2011, nearly 3 years after it had stopped flying on the route. This time, Air Jamaica has stopped flying to Miami from February 1.
The key reasons for stopping flights to Miami, only after two months of resumption, are still unclear. Though, financial worries and non-availability of passengers that the airline might have confronted during the period cannot be ruled out. Other presumption being forwarded by travel experts is that flights times were unsustainable.
In early December when the flights were re-introduced, Air Jamaica’s parent company Caribbean Airlines had aggressively tried to woo the passengers with introductory low fares starting at $79 one-way plus taxes.
Air Jamaica had curtailed several of its routes in the past, such as Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles and Baltimore.
Currently, Air Jamaica is serving Orlando, New York, Fort Lauderdale and Philadelphia.
