LATAM Airlines launched the first of three weekly non-stop flights between Lima, Peru and Montego Bay, Jamaica last Monday (December 2).
Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett and other officials were aboard the inaugural flight that departed from Lima.
Currently, the majority of the island’s visitors are from United States, followed by Canada, then the United Kingdom.
With the addition of Montego Bay, LATAM now serves five destinations in the Caribbean and Central America.
Last April, Minister Bartlett journeyed to Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Chile to meet with some of the most prominent airlines, travel media and tour operators among others in Latin America in a bid to bolster and diversify Jamaica’s tourism source markets.
Pablo Chiozza, a LATAM vice-president, said “The addition of the Montego Bay-Lima route is part of our commitment to offer more leisure travel options to our passengers.”
