Jamaica recently welcomed a new Frontier Airlines air service from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay on May 22.

The inaugural flight was celebrated with festivities upon departure from Dallas Fort Worth, and arrival into Jamaica.

Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett said, “We are very pleased to continue expanding our partnership with Frontier Airlines. The launch of this new non-stop flight from a key Southern U.S. gateway supports the strong rebound of Jamaica’s tourism sector as we are returning visitor arrivals numbers to pre-pandemic growth levels.”
