Jamaica Air Shuttle was a domestic and western Caribbean regional airline based at the Tinson Pen Aerodrome in Kingston, Jamaica. The airline began service on 7 December 2009, offering "on-demand" scheduled and private charter services to Jamaica's international and domestic airports.


Jamaica Air Shuttle is a privately held Jamaican airline, operating nineteen scheduled round-trip services per week between Kingston's Tinson Pen Aerodrome and Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. The airline's hub is Tinson Pen Aerodrome on Marcus Garvey Drive in Kingston. Jamaica Air Shuttle has suspended its flight operations as of 18 February 2013.

The company formed after the principals of Jamaica's Airways International Limited and Carib Aviation Limited, a now defunct airline that previously operated from Antigua and Barbuda, merged operations to provide scheduled service to passengers needing to travel between Kingston and Montego Bay.[citation needed] Private charters within Jamaica, and between the island's international airports and regional cities in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, the Cayman Islands and Cuba are also available.

After several months of operation, the company announced that it would be expanded its scheduled service Cayman Brac, Port-au-Prince in Haiti and Santiago de Cuba in Cuba.

The airline was grounded on 18 February 2013, as the owner (Bruce Kaufman) of the planes the company uses pulled out of the business. After failing to gain new investors, the company ceased operations.
