Airline employees of colour, all members of the minority group Skye Kingdom, took time out from their recent cruise ship stop in Jamaica to provide philanthropic work for students and teachers at the Montego Bay Infant School.

The flight and ground attendants from airlines, including American, Southwest, LIAT and Delta, brought several gifts for the school, which is among the largest of its kind on the island.
