While the airline will operate the 140-kilometre route with 30-seat Embraer Brasilias, Caribbean Airlines offers daily flights using much larger 737-800s.

  • interCaribbean Airways has started domestic flights on the island of Jamaica. On 16 April, the airline commenced flying 16 times weekly between Montego Bay (MBJ) and Kingston (KIN), a distance of just 140 kilometres. The airline will operate the route with 30-seat Embraer EMB 120 Brasilias. Competition on the route is provided by Caribbean Airlines, which operates daily with a much larger 737-800. This is a significant step for the Turks & Caicos-based airline, as it is the first time that the Jamaican government has allowed a foreign carrier to operate domestic services.
