The airline which made its inaugural flight on February 14, 2013 has been hit by several flight delays and resignations in recent times.
Three founding members of staff — Jamaicans Lloyd Tai, Christine Steele and Nadine Silvera — have reportedly resigned from the company.
According to a report by the Observer, several flight delays have rocked Fly Jamaica Airways Limited over the past month, leaving passengers angry at the inconvenience.
Yesterday, news emerged that a flight to New York from Georgetown, Guyana, scheduled to leave last Friday, was delayed for two days.
Before that, on July 10, the Kingston to New York flight was cancelled, an irate passenger told the Jamaica Observer. “People were at the airport at 2:30 am for a 5:30 am departure. Up to 9:30 nobody was talking to my family and they didn’t know what was happening. Eventually they were re-routed on another airline,” the passenger said.
Yet another passenger told the Observer that a flight that was scheduled to depart New York on June 26 arrived in Jamaica on June 28 due to repairs and maintenance on a plane.
