Air Jamaica gains US$2 Million

Air Jamaica will achieve a US$2 million reduction in its annual operating costs by making two adjustments to its in-flight meal service effective July 1, 2005.

Snack and beverage service will be offered instead of full meal service on select flights under 2.5 hours. The change will affect passengers traveling in Lovebird Economy Class on routes connecting Jamaica with select gateways in the Caribbean (Nassau, Grand Cayman, and Curacao) and Florida (Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Orlando). Meal service will continue to be offered in First Class, and a full breakfast to all passengers on flights scheduled to depart prior to 8:30 a.m. No changes will be made to Air Jamaica’s full meal and beverage service on flights over 2.5 hours.

Beer and wine will be available for sale on all flights, except for service along the London route. The change will affect passengers traveling in Lovebird Economy Class only. Beer is priced at US$2.00, while wine is available for US$3.00. The US$5.00 charge for hard liquor remains unchanged. Complimentary hard liquor, beer, and wine will continue to be provided to First Class passengers and champagne to all passengers on all flights.

These adjustments are a continuation of Air Jamaica’s corporate restructuring program. Launched in December 2004, the corporate restructuring program is designed to improve operational efficiencies and reduce costs by approximately US$50 million in the face of record-high fuel prices and increased competition.
