    JetBlue announced today that it plans to begin new daily non-stop service from JFK to Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica, beginning May 21, 2009 (just in time for our wedding! Thanks Jet Blue :)). Connections to Montego Bay will also be available from Boston, Buffalo, Rochester, and Washington D.C.


    Big relief for us... we were starting to get nervous with all the grim Air Jamaica news lately.

          Thanks so much for the heads up!
          Although my anniversary will have passed by this time frame, it sounds like the perfect time to make my return to JA!
