Air Jamaica has announced that it will be cutting its service to some of its routes because the airline will be losing three of its planes.

The national carrier says effective March 9 flights from New York to Grenada and Jamaica to Orlando will be suspended.

The airline said it will be suspending flights from Jamaica to Curacao, Chicago, Havana, Cuba and Nassau, Bahamas as of April 12.

President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Jamaica Bruce Nobles said reducing the size of the fleet has become necessary as the airline seeks to meet its financial obligations.

The national carrier will now have six planes.

However, Mr Nobles is seeking to assure that the airline’s service will not be affected by the reduction.

Air Jamaica has also announced adjustment to its flight schedules for some of its destinations.

Flights from New York to Jamaica have been reduced to three daily departures, effective March 14.

Travel to Nassau has been reduced to two daily flights, while flights to Chicago will be reduced to three weekly flights between March 9 and April 11.

Come April 12, Air Jamaica will only operate weekly flights between Jamaica and five cities with daily service to Baltimore, Philadelphia and Toronto, and four daily flights to Fort Lauderdale.
