It was revealed today that Air Jamaica has acquired 2 A340 aircraft for the Jamaica-England route.Although this is good news for the airline, concern has been raised as to whether the airline will be able to sustain this as a possible fall out of Jamaica's tourism sector is a possibility due to the recent unrests in West Kingston.
The concern was aired by persons associated with the airline as it is widely reported around the world that all of Jamaica was in chaos when only a small portion of the capital city was having disturbances. JM it is hoped will be able to introduce these new aircraft for the summer run as they intend to increase flights to 11 per week into London.
