Published on : Friday, November 12, 2021

Jamaica has welcomed the arrival of American Airlines on a new flight from Philadelphia International Airport. The first plane touched down at Norman Manley International Airport (KIN) in Kingston earlier.

The route will provide another convenient option for travellers from the north-east of the United States to get to island. With a large diaspora population living in this region, it will now be easier than ever for them to fly right into Kingston.

Donovan White, Director of Tourism, Jamaica said in a statement that he is very pleased to welcome the new service from the largest air passenger carrier, American Airlines. He mentioned that the new flights to Jamaica from Philadelphia provide additional convenient options for visitors and Caribbean nationals from the north-eastern United States to travel to island.

He also mentioned that authorities are grateful to American for inaugurating this additional service at the ideal time of year to impact Jamaica’s high season arrivals. According to Jim Tyrrell, Chief Revenue Officer at Philadelphia International Airport, Kingston is a destination that meets the criteria for what travellers are seeking.

He further added that as passengers have resumed their travel, the top destinations the airport have seen people traveling to are those that have sun, sand and beaches and also those where they can visit their families and friends,.

American Airlines’ non-stop flights to Kingston (KIN) are now operating three times weekly. Operating Mon/Thurs/Sun from Philadelphia (PHL) departing at 09:40 and arriving in Kingston at 13:32.
