JA Air Shuttle service between JA & Cuba to be reintroduced
Mon. Nov.21,2011

Jamaica Air Shuttle is to reintroduce scheduled service to Cuba. The airline says it will resume the service on December 15, with a twice-weekly schedule to Santiago de Cuba.

The flights, which will operate on Thursdays and Sundays, will connect both Jamaica’s capital city, Kingston, and tourist capital, Montego Bay, St. James with Santiago de Cuba.

Since March of this year, Jamaica Air Shuttle has operated scheduled charter services on the route, while it pursued full scheduled service authorization from Jamaica and Cuba.

There has been no scheduled service between Jamaica and Santiago de Cuba since 2005, and no scheduled air connection between Jamaica and any city in Cuba since early 2010.

According to Jamaica Air Shuttle’s marketing manager Deryck Dwyer, the destination is a good strategic choice for the airline, since hundreds of Jamaican students attend Universities in Santiago de Cuba and surrounding provinces; and many Cuban professionals working in Jamaica originate in south central and eastern Cuba.

This service will allow these commuters easy access between Cuba and Jamaica.
