JamaicaObserver.com: "FOLLOWING the recent divestment of the national carrier Air Jamaica to the Trinidad-based Caribbean Airlines, Air Canada is set to increase its flights out of Jamaica beginning this month. This was disclosed in a release sent to Caribbean Business Report (CBR) by the airline.
'Air Canada has been serving Jamaica for 62 years. Over that time, Jamaica and Canada have built close ties due to business connections, by having families living in both countries and through a vibrant tourism market. Air transport plays a vital role in maintaining these relationships and Air Canada wants to ensure that there is sufficient capacity linking Jamaica and Canada to meet the demand. As a result, we will be increasing our flights to up to five times a week this summer, more than doubling our current level of service,' said Marcel Forget, vice-president, Network Planning at Air Canada."
