Fly Jamaica Airways is a Jamaican airline headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica.
The airline offers services to Guyana, Toronto and New York.
Fly Jamaica Airways's main hub is at Norman Manley International Airport (formerly Palisadoes Airport) which is an international airport that serves Kingston. In September 2012, Fly Jamaica Airways was certified by the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA) and was then permitted to operate in the United States later that year. The airline's inaugural flight to New York took place in February 2013.
In June 2014, Fly Jamaica Airways acquired a new Boeing 767-300ER which was flown to Kingston to commence their flight schedule. The new aircraft was to increase flight operations to New York, to a daily service.
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. 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 per cent. 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.
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.
In April 2017, Fly Jamaica Airways announced hat the number of passengers choosing the airline increased by nearly a half over the past year allowing the airline to hold its own.
Fly Jamaica Airways always allow 1 carry-on bag at 22lbs/10kg and 2 checked bags at 50lbs /23 kg to and from all destinations.
If a passenger exceeds the maximum number of bags permitted and/or the maximum weight allowed for each bag or the maximum dimensions permitted for each checked or carried on bag, the passenger will be subject to the excess baggage charges as outlined in the Excess Baggage chart.
