InterCaribbean Airways will soon launch non-stop service between Barbados and Jamaica.

Starting February 6, 2024, the regional Caribbean carrier will launch flights from Bridgetown, Barbados (BGI) to Kingston, Jamaica (KIN) operated by its leased Mitsubishi CRJ-700 aircraft. The airline is set to fly three times weekly as follows.

“We are proud to introduce this non-stop service, which is a direct response to the growing need for improved travel connectivity in the Caribbean,” said Trevor Sadler, CEO of interCaribbean. “This new route is set to enhance both business travel and tourism, bringing these two vibrant cities closer.”

The new route also opens up better connecting options out of Barbados for those flying to and from other countries in the Eastern Caribbean. These include Grenada, St. Lucia, Dominica, Antigua, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as well as Georgetown, Guyana.

At the moment, InterCaribbean will be the only airline operating this route, with other carriers like Caribbean Airlines and FlyAllways previously operating the route either on a seasonal or chartered basis.

Unfortunately like many other Caribbean fares, it’s extremely expensive to island hop, with a round trip ticket costing $850 (more than 25% of that going towards taxes).
