05 May Inside First flight to Jamaica from Stansted Airport
A very first for travellers from Stansted Airport!
Yesterday saw the first ever direct service to the Caribbean island of Jamaica from London Stansted Airport, with almost 300 holiday-makers jetting off on-board a state-of-the-art Thomson Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The airline will operate a weekly service this summer to the island’s capital, Montego Bay.
Thomson Airways launched its long-haul flying programme from Stansted last year flying direct to Cancun.
London Stansted Airport’s Aviation Director, Mats Sigurdson, said:
“This new flight to Jamaica is a fantastic boost to the airport and for people in the region and east and north London looking for a holiday in the Caribbean from their local airport. This is another new route for the airport and we’re delighted that Thomson has once again recognised that Stansted is the perfect location to develop and grow their network.”
