Jamaica Air Shuttle is a domestic and western Caribbean regional airline based at the Tinson Pen Aerodrome in Kingston, Jamaica. The airline began service on 7 December 2009, offering "on-demand" scheduled and private charter services to Jamaica's international and domestic airports.
The company formed after the principals of Jamaica's Airways International Limited and Carib Aviation Limited, a now defunct airline that previously operated from Antigua and Barbuda, merged operations to provide scheduled service to passengers needing to travel between Kingston and Montego Bay. Private charters within Jamaica, and between the island's international airports and regional cities in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, the Cayman Islands and Cuba are also available.
Jamaica Air Shuttle offered its Frequent Flyer Program to passengers who foresaw continued use of the airline's domestic service. The loyalty program was introduced in December 2009, and provided passengers with the opportunity to pre-purchase blocks of tickets for domestic travel. This pre-purchase facilitates unrestricted travel for passengers, including the ability to make flight changes and cancel booked flights without incurring any fees. In addition, passengers are not subject to changes in air fare; pre-purchased tickets attract a set air fare.
Each block of ten tickets purchased for domestic travel came with an additional eleventh "free" ticket, which thereby allowed passengers to experience overall savings of 25% off the normal fare.
