MIAMI – A preliminary targeted transaction date of April 12, 2010 has been set by which the operations of Air Jamaica will begin the transition to Caribbean Airlines. This transaction date dovetails with the airline’s major schedule change that was previously announced. However, the transaction date could change as the details of the transition are finalized.
The following are important points to note as the changeover is made:
The transition to Caribbean Airlines will be phased over a period of up to one year, in order to ensure that customers will continue to be provided with the best possible travel experience.
Air Jamaica aircraft will continue to be utilized during the transition period.
Current Air Jamaica pilots, flight crews and ground staff will operate the aircraft for the schedule already published.
All customer services, including reservations, website and sales, will continue to operate in much the same way as today, for a period of time.
“We have enjoyed a tremendous relationship with our loyal customers in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean, as well as throughout the Diaspora, and we are pleased to advise that our company is also committed to continuing these relationships, doing everything possible to earn your loyalty and trust,” stated Bruce Nobles, Air Jamaica’s President and CEO.
As of April 12, the airline offers a superior schedule between Jamaica and its core destinations – namely four daily flights from Fort Lauderdale, three daily flights from New York (JFK) and daily flights from Philadelphia, Baltimore and Toronto.
