British Airways will increase its services from Jamaica next summer, as the island benefits from new products and special offers.

The airline is currently offering sale prices from Jamaica to London starting from as low as $728, inclusive of taxes, fees and charges in its World Traveller (economy) cabin and $1121 in World Traveller Plus (premium economy) for travel December 2 to 26, 2018.  

Customers looking to travel before the holiday season can benefit from sale prices from $778 (inclusive of taxes, fees and charges) for travel from Dec. 1-23, 2018.  The sale fare is valid to book until November 11, 2018, and all return travel is to be completed by March 31, 2019.

Diane Corrie, Commercial Manager Caribbean, British Airways said, “We are constantly looking at ways to support the travel needs of our customers in Jamaica and from our key markets overseas.  London is an exciting city to celebrate the holidays and we’re excited to offer these special fares for those looking for a magical holiday”.

The December sale is ideal for travelers wanting to visit London for the Christmas holidays and to spend time with family and friends. There are many exciting activities taking place in London including the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, Southbank’s Wintertime Festival and Christmas in Leicester Square. There are also great shopping deals on fashion, electronics and more during the Boxing Day and January sales.

Corrie said the recently launched product enhancements to its catering, Club World bedding and inflight entertainment on its Boeing 777 aircraft which operates the Kingston to London Gatwick route, make for “an enhanced flight experience” and customer feedback has been very positive.

British Airways currently operates non-stop flights three times per week from Kingston to London Gatwick and will operate an additional service during the peak summer months in 2019.
