[LATAM] New non-stop flights between Jamaica and Peru start today
Monday, December 02, 2019

MONTEGO BAY, St James

The first of three weekly non-stop flights by LATAM Airlines Group between their major hub in Lima, Peru and Montego Bay, Jamaica will arrive at the Sangster International Airport this afternoon.

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett will be among the passengers on LATAM flight number 2764, which is scheduled to depart Lima, Peru today at 12:15 pm and arrive at the Sangster International Airport at 5:07 pm.

The inaugural flight will be welcomed by Bartlett, other tourism officials and diplomatic officials from several South American nations.

In April last year, Bartlett and several tourism officials — including Director of Tourism, Donovan White; senior advisor/strategist, Delano Seiveright; and deputy director of tourism, Sales/USA and Latin America, Donnie Dawson — visited Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Colombia.

They met with the leadership of Latin America's largest airlines, tour operators, travel media, government officials, travel agents, and investors, among other stakeholders, as part of efforts to not only boost, but to diversify Jamaica's tourism source markets as well.

Jamaica currently gets the bulk of its visitors from the United States, followed by Canada, then the United Kingdom.

Pablo Chiozza, a LATAM vice-president, noted that "Montego Bay will be our fifth destination in the Caribbean".

"The addition of the Montego Bay-Lima route is part of our commitment to offer more leisure travel options to our passengers," Chiozza said.

LATAM Airlines Group is Latin America's largest airline group, operating more than 1,200 flights per day, and transports 67 million passengers per year. It has one of the largest route networks in the world, offering air services to around 140 destinations in 25 countries, with a significant presence in six domestic markets in Latin America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

LATAM touches down in Montego Bay, Jamaica
02 December, 2019

LATAM Airlines Group has launched a new, non-stop service between its hub in Lima, capital of Peru, and Montego Bay in Jamaica. The three-times weekly frequency arrived for the first time at Sangster International Airport in the Caribbean tourism capital earlier.

Jamaica tourism minister, Edmund Bartlett, was among the passengers onboard LATAM flight number 2764, which arrived at 17:07 today. The inaugural flight will be welcomed by other tourism officials and diplomats from several nations.

Jamaica currently gets the bulk of its visitors from the United States, followed by Canada and the United Kingdom. However, minister Bartlett has pushed for new connections to South America, growing new markets.

Pablo Chiozza, LATAM vice-president, noted: “Montego Bay will be our fifth destination in the Caribbean. The addition of the Montego Bay-Lima route is part of our commitment to offer more leisure travel options to our passengers.”
