I don't like to speculate on the future of airlines, but Fly Jamaica (1 x B767-300ER) may not recover from the crash landing of its B757-200 in Georgetown, Guyana, on November 8, 2018, no fatalities, but when you have just 2 aircraft, and one is written off, you just lost half your capacity at the beginning of the Winter Caribbean season? it's not good.

The airline commenced operations February 14, 2013, and may not make it to its 6th anniversary.

Its lone aircraft today, a B767-300ER has been in maintenance in Mexico City before the November 9, 2018 crash landing of its B757-200, and now it has no aircraft, no revenue and it looks like no money for salaries or maintenance for its lone B767-300ER.

Fly Jamaica is continuing to struggle financially, with the company admitting to staff that it is unable to pay salaries for November and December.

Fly Jamaica Airways was formed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Guyana-born Paul Ronald Reece, Mrs. Roxanne Reece and three Jamaican shareholders.

Captain Reece is also the owner of Wings Aviation Ltd, based in Guyana, which owns and operates Cessna aircraft in the interior of Guyana.

Management said it was hoping the company's situation would improve in the coming weeks?

I wish Mr. Ronald Reece, of fly Jamaica all the best!
