Fly Jamaica commences its recovery plan 

Fly Jamaica Airways are attempting to get their schedules back on track. They will commence its 'Operations Recovery Plan' by operating a leased aircraft on a limited schedule. Passengers will be contacted with their flight departure. Fly Jamaica Airways requests that passengers desist from going to their local airport for departure unless notified by an airline representative. Fly Jamaica Airways aircraft are currently undergoing scheduled and unscheduled maintenance checks. These checks are mandatory or otherwise required at this time. Fly Jamaica Airways will advise as soon as one or both of its aircraft are returned to service. As a result the airline is engaging third party carriers to support the operation. During this period of irregular operations the sourcing of alternative aircraft has become increasingly challenging due to the unavailability of suitable aircraft and/or the unavailability of flight crews to operate the flights. Most recently, with the onset of severe weather conditions in the Northeast region of the U.S. and specifically in the New York area, Terminal One at JFK has been limiting arrivals and departures due to ramp congestion, and several other issues as a result of the adverse weather conditions. Fly Jamaica Airways sincerely regrets the inconvenience our irregular operations have caused. Fly Jamaica are utilizing every available resource to recover the operation and return to regular schedule as soon as possible.

Fly Jamaica begins direct flights between Guayna and Cuba

Fly Jamaica Airways has been granted permission to begin a series between Guyana and Cuba, after applying several months ago. This was announced by Minister of State Joe Harmon during a press briefing on Thursday. He noted that there was no delay at the level of cabinet in granting the approval, but said the application would have had to be processed by the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority before reaching cabinet. Fly Jamaica has been seeking to spread its wings to various destinations and is expected to launch the service to Cuba to take advantage of the increased travel between the two destinations.

Fly Jamaica Grows Passenger Loads

Fly Jamaica Airways said that the number of passengers choosing the airline increased by nearly a half over the past year allowing the airline to hold its own, according to Chairman and CEO Paul Ronald Reece. The airline owner and pilot rationalised that customer loyalty would have been the main reason for the spike in business, as the company continues to operate the same number of routes. "We got growth from existing routes based on increased customers' confidence and increased loyalty in the brand," said Reece. "So we are pushing on. The more people that fly with us, they like the service and want to come back," he told the Financial Gleaner.

Fly Jamaica currently employs 362 persons and recently attracted some Jamaican pilots back home from working in the United Arab Emirates. In 2016, passengers flying the airline totalled some 135,830, up from roughly 93,325 a year earlier or 45 per cent higher year-on-year, according to Reece, who cited the figures from internally generated graphs during an interview at his Renfrew Road offices in New Kingston. Comparative industry data for passenger load factors related to Jamaica either does not exist in the region, or in the case of United States carriers, the data lags six months. The figures cited by Reece, however, represents growth for the carrier whose main competitors are Caribbean Airlines, jetBlue and American Airlines. Fly Jamaica was founded in 2011 and started operations on February 14, 2013. In that first year, it carried roughly 50,000 passengers. Since then, its annual passenger loads have improved 172%. The destination routes flown by the airline include Kingston, Toronto, Georgetown and New York. It also recently flew a charter service from Venezuela to China. The airline operates mainly from the Norman Manley International Airport using two Boeing aircraft - a 757 single-aisle cabin seating 198 persons, and 767 twin-aisle cabin seating 246.

We still have seats available; we are not flying full on every flight. So seats are available from North America and South America," he said, while declining to give the passenger load factor, a key metric of passengers compared to available seats. Asked whether the airline was making money or breaking even, Reece responded: "We are holding our own." Fly Jamaica continues to examine the feasibility of adding Fort Lauderdale as a route, but it would require a substantial investment in two smaller aircraft to boost the fleet. "In order to do Kingston to Fort Lauderdale, we would have to do a daily service, which would require two 737-800s in order to go back and forth," he said, explaining that two are needed for redundancy. He did not give a timeline for the acquisition, but noted that the airline was considering its options. In January, Reece said at the JSE Capital Markets Conference that he was considering listing the airline on the Jamaica Stock Exchange to raise financing for "four additional aircraft".

Fly Jamaica Airways announced it was launching Guyana charters to Cuba, JFK

Fly Jamaica Airways is set to launch charter flights from Georgetown Cheddi Jagan, Guyana to Cuba and New York JFK in February through its Air Guyana brand. The airline also plans to add scheduled flights in the future. Fly Jamaica already operates under its own brand between Georgetown and New York JFK as well as from Georgetown to Kingston Norman Manley using its single B757-200. As Guyana is a Category II country, Air Guyana will wet-lease Fly Jamaica's B767-300 for the charters. CEO Roxanne Reece had indicated in October of last year that flights to Cuba could start in December, but the launch was delayed after B767-300 N767WA (msn 24876) was damaged at Georgetown Cheddi Jagan on November 29, 2016.
