Countdown to launch of direct routes from Gothenburg and Oslo to Jamaica
Travel to Jamaica is about to get even easier for Swedish visitors with the autumn launch of two new direct flights. Bookings for the new routes are selling well.
The hotly anticipated additional flight routes with VING from Gothenburg via Oslo will launch on November 29, 2015 and will operate throughout the peak season with a fortnightly rotation until April 2016. VING will also continue to operate flights out of Stockholm fortnightly.
The new routes have been added due to increasing demand from Scandinavians who want to travel to Jamaica. The two-week stopover will ensure that the visitors can maximise the time they spend enjoying an idyllic holiday at the 'Home of All Right'.
In addition to VING's current direct service from Stockholm, this new route will take travellers approximately 111⁄2 hours to travel to Jamaica. This means VING is doubling its capacity to the island, from the capital Stockholm, as well as from Gothenburg via Oslo. VING is part of the Thomas Cook Group.
Fritidsresor, a TUI Nordic brand, will also continue to operate their successful direct weekly flights to Montego Bay from Stockholm, as well as their direct flight from Copenhagen and Helsinki on a fortnightly basis for the winter 2015/2016 season.
Paul Pennicook, director of tourism at the Jamaica Tourist Board, said: "We're seeing increased demand for Jamaica holidays from Scandinavia, so these new direct routes will open up greater opportunities for holiday makers to experience Jamaica's diverse tourism product. With bookings going well, it is clear that Scandinavians are eager to return to the warmth and vibe of Jamaica, as well as explore the laid-back culture of the island."
