New Nonstop Service to Jamaica Takes Off from Bradley International Airport

Following much anticipation, in December, Connecticut Airport Authority officials along with local leaders and partners, inaugurated the first flight from Bradley International Airport to Montego Bay, Jamaica.

“We are proud to have finally launched nonstop service to Montego Bay,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., Executive Director of the CAA. “In addition to connecting our passengers to an exciting travel destination, we are proud to offer convenient connectivity for the state’s strong Jamaican population, their friends, and their relatives. We thank Spirit Airlines, Visit Jamaica and the many community leaders who partnered with us in securing the service and launching this much anticipated flight.”

“We’ve been overjoyed by the community’s excitement and anticipation for the first-ever nonstop service connecting Connecticut and Jamaica,” said John Kirby, Vice President of Network Planning at Spirit Airlines.

“We welcome this new nonstop service by Spirit,” said the Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism, Jamaica. “Connecticut is an important market for Jamaica in the key Northeast region of the U.S. that’s home to many of our Diaspora. The launch of this new flight supports the continuing strong rebound of Jamaica’s tourism sector and provides travelers with yet another convenient option to get to our beautiful island.”

Connecticut is home to one of the largest Jamaican communities in the world, boasting the fifth largest population of residents with Jamaican ancestry among all U.S. states. According to census data, there are more than 56,000 residents with Jamaican ancestry in Connecticut.

This is the first time that a nonstop flight to Jamaica is being offered from Bradley International Airport. The service now operates year-round, four times weekly.
