Spirit Launches New Non-Stop Flights to Jamaica

DALLAS – Spirit Airlines (NK) is to launch a new non-stop service between Hartford’s Bradley International Airport (BDL), Connecticut, and Sangster International Airport (MBJ) in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The four times weekly service will commence on December 15, 2022, and will operate year-round.

John Kirby, Spirit Airlines Vice President of Network Planning, said, “Spirit Airlines is excited to launch our first ever international flight from Bradley International Airport. We sincerely appreciate our partnership with the airport and the opportunities to grow since launching service in 2017.”

A Much Pursued Service


Kevin A. Dillon, Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority, added, “We have pursued non-stop Jamaica service at Bradley International Airport for years now in an effort to meet our community’s needs, and we are proud to finally make it a reality with Spirit’s partnership. I have no doubt that this service will be successful.”

Spirit has served Jamaica since 2005. For many years there have been calls for a non-stop service between Jamaica and Connecticut to serve the latter’s sizeable Jamaican-American community whilst bolstering trade and tourism.

It launched services from BDL in 2017 and currently flies to Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Fort Myers (RSW), Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), and Tampa (TPA) in Florida, plus Myrtle Beach (MYR), South Carolina.
