Air Jamaica Announces Changes To Economy Class Meal Service

Effective May 1, 2009, Air Jamaica will offer Economy Class passengers a complimentary packaged snack, instead of the current meal service. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and juices will remain complimentary and passengers will be able to purchase alcoholic beverages as desired. Complimentary champagne will be discontinued.

In September 2009, the airline will introduce a new “Buy on Board” program with snacks that showcase the flavors of Jamaica.

“These changes to meal service in Economy Class will allow Air Jamaica to be more competitive in today’s environment and will secure significant efficiencies as we serve the travel needs of our customers,” said Bruce Nobles, Air Jamaica’s President & CEO.

Air Jamaica’s premium service in Lovebird Executive Class will continue to feature complimentary meals and beverages.
