United Airlines celebrates 10 years in Jamaica
Passengers who travel on United Airlines do so in class and style, and the airline lived up to this reputation, extending similar treatment to its guests' last weekend.
United Airlines celebrated its 10th anniversary of doing business in Jamaica, and in observance of the decade of sterling service to the island, hosted guests at a cocktail reception at The Ritz-Carlton Resort and Spa in Montego Bay.
The intimate gathering was headed by United's country manager (Jamaica), Tom Scarlett and Diana Loaces, the regional sales manager for the other Caribbean islands, along with players in the tourism and travel industry.
These included John Lynch, the director of tourism and his deputies Sandra Scott and Rosie Johnson; his brother Patrick Lynch; Camille Needham, executive director of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA); Brian Wiggan, AJAS Limited manager and his staff and Jacqueline Williams, a senior travel consultant with Trafalgar Travel, among others.
United Airlines connects Jamaica (operating out of the Sangster International Airport) and its New York-Newark Liberty and Houston, Texas hubs on Saturdays and Sundays, and with a Saturday-only service to the Chicago and Washington Dulles hubs.
"We are thrilled to celebrate this decade of service to Jamaica," said United's Diana Loaces. Director of Tourism, John Lynch said Jamaica as a whole and particularly its tourism industry was quite pleased with the continued partnership with the airline.
With their non-stop service between Montego Bay, Newark, Houston, Chicago and Washington, United Airlines says it offers passengers convenient connections to the airline's global route network.
