Air Jamaica Maintains Cargo Service in Miami, LA and Atlanta

KINGSTON, JAMAICA – Air Jamaica’s President & CEO Bruce R. Nobles confirmed that the airline will maintain its current cargo services from Miami, Los Angeles, and Atlanta, despite its soon-to-be discontinued passenger service from these cities as part of its 2009 Business Plan. The recently announced plan is designed to improve productivity and bring the airline’s unit costs in line with international norms.

“Our cargo business is not only important to our own operations, but also plays an important role in Jamaica’s productive sector. We are not making any changes and our cargo customers can continue to depend on us,” Mr. Nobles said.

Air Jamaica uses an extensive road feeder network to move cargo from across the U.S. to its gateways in the South Florida and Northeastern seaboard. Service between Miami and Kingston will continue three times per week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays – and between Miami and Montego Bay on Thursdays and Sundays. This means that Air Jamaica, which has a 767 freighter operating on the Miami/Jamaica route, will maintain its position as the airline with the best frequency from Miami and the one with the most weekly cargo capacity – that is, 270,000 pounds per week. The airline will also continue cargo service to the Eastern Caribbean.

Air Jamaica’s cargo customers range from large commercial operations that import and export processed food and agricultural produce, to individuals importing household appliances.
