Continuing to expand ease of access to the island for US travelers, Jamaica will welcome new air service from Denver International Airport (DEN) to Sangster International Airport (MBJ) in Montego Bay starting on November 4, 2023, by United Airlines. Operating weekly on Saturdays, it will be the only carrier serving Jamaica non-stop from the Denver gateway.
“We are very pleased to expand our partnership with United with the launch of this new non-stop flight from the legacy carrier’s Denver hub,” said the Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism, Jamaica. “The mile-high city is one of the fastest growing in the US, so it represents a top target market in the west and supports the strong rebound of Jamaica’s tourism sector as our visitor arrivals numbers are returning to growth over 2019 levels.”
Donovan White, Director of Tourism, Jamaica Tourist Board, added, “To welcome another non-stop flight to our island by United, the most-flown airline operating out of Denver, is very gratifying.”
“It is an important addition to Jamaica’s existing air service that provides US travelers with yet another convenient option to get to the island for their next business or leisure trip.”
United will operate the non-stop flight from Denver (DEN) to Montego Bay (MBJ) once a week on Saturdays utilizing the brand-new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. With the addition of this new service, the carrier will now serve 5 routes from the US to Jamaica, complementing its existing non-stop service from Newark (EWR), Washington D.C. (IAD), Chicago (ORD), and Houston (HOU) to Montego Bay (MBJ).
