The Non-Stop Service Increases Accessibility from The U.S.

New service will increase Jamaica’s airlift from the U.S., its largest tourism market, by providing 186 seats per flight.

The Jamaica Tourist Board announced Frontier Airlines as the latest international carrier to touch down in Montego Bay from Tampa International Airport (TPA). The low-cost carrier will begin flying nonstop twice a week between Montego and TPA as of today June 24, 2022.

With its arrival, this is the fifth city in the United States from which Frontier will serve Jamaica, making it a highly desirable destination. Other gateway cities include Philadelphia, Miami, Orlando and Atlanta.

“We are very excited to be part of Frontier Airlines’ growth and expansion plans,” said Jamaica’s Director of Tourism, Donovan White.

“With this new connection between travelers from Tampa Bay, we will bring more visitors to discover the unique culture, breath-taking landscapes and warm, welcoming people in the island.”
