Increase in flight availability for travellers taking Jamaica holidays

Jamaica holidays are on the rise as a series of additional flights are scheduled to travel to the Caribbean region this winter. Despite the recent gloomy outlook on tourism in the Caribbean, vastly due to the global economical situation and fewer visitors, new Jamaica flights, which will provide an additional 70,000 seats, will be available for travellers taking holidays in Jamaica.

Jamaica has been more fortunate than many other areas in the Caribbean with tourism not being as badly affected as other nearby regions such as Cuba and the Bahamas. The popular luxury destination saw a 3.4 per cent increase in visitors taking Jamaica holidays from January to June this year.

The Caribbean island provides a luxury getaway for many with white sandy beaches, turquoise sparkling waters, a tropical climate with soaring temperatures, stunning scenery, a wide range of luxury resorts and stylish Jamaica hotels, and a relaxing, care-free environment.

The increase in flights will inevitably provide more custom for Jamaica hotels and trade for local businesses which will provide the Caribbean region with the tourism boost it needs. Other Caribbean destinations are also expected to see an increase in flights during the winter season which will attract more travellers looking to take relaxing luxury breaks.

Jamaica sees a high number of travellers coming from the US each year, mostly due to its close proximity to the island. However, tourism officials are currently targeting European customers in a bid to attract European trade and tourists taking Jamaica holidays to help boost the region's travel sector even more.
