Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands – interCaribbean Airways announces a new nonstop weekly flight between Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands and Montego Bay, Jamaica. As of December 18, 2016, the new service will operate every Sunday out of Providenciales (PLS), with a Thursday return out of Montego Bay (MBJ).
Initially offered on a once weekly basis, this service will increase to 8 weekly flights on each route, providing a faster flight experience and improved connections from San Juan/Puerto Rico, Nassau/Bahamas, and Santo Domingo/Dominican Republic. This flight network offers the fastest way around the Caribbean.
Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, welcomes interCaribbean Airways’ launch of the new nonstop weekly service from Providenciales to the island’s tourism capital and second city.
Minister Bartlett said, “Inter-regional travel plays a critical role in Jamaica’s efforts to increase visitor arrivals above the current growth rate of five percent. Cooperation between our sister islands will assist in establishing multi-destination marketing arrangements that give us access to new markets. This is exciting news for us, and we are happy to have interCaribbean Airways on board.”
Dr. Rafael Echevarne, Chief Executive Officer of MBJ Airports Limited, commented: “We are very pleased with the new non-stop service to Providenciales. Montego Bay not only gains a new destination, but having direct access to interCaribbean’ s hub opens up a wealth of much needed connectivity across the Caribbean”.
Trevor Sadler, interCaribbean Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We have experienced an increasing demand for destination Montego Bay, allowing us to launch this new service. We are pleased to continue to respond to the need of the Caribbean Traveler with this service. With significant ties between the two Caribbean nations, we look forward to building on this initial once a week service”.
