Air Jamaica extends flight package to coincide with Sumfest 2009


In anticipation of high traffic summer activities such as the internationally acclaimed Reggae Sumfest festival in Montego Bay, event sponsor Air Jamaica, has made changes to its regular flight schedule, including the re-introduction of its ‘Night Bird’ service.
“We have added one more flight to Fort Lauderdale making it five daily flights to Fort Lauderdale, and that started on June 25. This is an added advantage for patrons of Reggae Sumfest,” said Air Jamaica Marketing Manager Tracy Ann Menzies.
According to Menzies, Air Jamaica has also expanded its New York route by re-introducing its once popular ‘Night Bird’ service for those jetsetters who like to squeeze the most out of the 24-hour workday.
“We have also introduced another flight to New York making it four daily flights,” she said.
“This New York addition is a prime flight because it is the reintroduction of our Night Bird service allowing our travellers to basically play or work all day, sleep on their way to their destination be it Jamaica or New York and wake up in the city.”
The Night Bird flights have passengers arriving in time for sunrise and coffee, with a midnight flight from Jamaica which gets into New York at 5:00am, and a 2:15 am flight from New York that arrives in Jamaica at approximately 5:00 am.
The airline has also increased its Orlando offerings to two flights per day every Tuesday and flights every other day except Sunday.
