Friday, December 23, 2005 – Saint Lucia is to benefit from a new stop service from New York . The non-stop Lovebird A320 service commencing February 23rd, 2006 will depart from New York’s JFK International Airport .

The JM092 will operate non-stop on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays, departing New York at 7:00 am and arriving Saint Lucia at 12:35 pm. On the return leg, JM093 will depart St. Lucia at 6:35pm and arrive in New York at 10:15pm.

For some time, the Government of Saint Lucia through the St. Lucia Tourist Board and Air Jamaica have had discussions on the introduction of non-stop flights between New York and St. Lucia in light of the increase in the construction of new hotel rooms and the need for additional direct airlift to the island.

“This will be the first non-stop service from New York to St. Lucia and Air Jamaica is proud to give the Caribbean another first. We look forward to once again offering our Lovebird hospitality to the island and people of St. Lucia and are confident Air Jamaica’s return will boost tourist and other traffic to the island,” said Chairman of Air Jamaica, O.K. Melhado.

Mr. Melhado reiterated the strong commitment to growing the Lovebird brand within the Caribbean and said Air Jamaica will continue to exploit every feasible opportunity.

Saint Lucia's Tourism Minister Honourable Phillip J. Pierre explained that “the Government of Saint Lucia is pleased that the partnership with Air Jamaica will continue and anticipates that Saint Lucia’s tourism industry will benefit from the return of Air Jamaica.“

Chairman of the St. Lucia Tourist Board Mr. Costella Michel describes the new service as an important gateway. “New York has always been an important gateway for Saint Lucia. The St. Lucia Tourist Board looks forward to working with Air Jamaica on joint promotional activity in order to ensure the success of this direct service to Saint Lucia.”
