Swedes are heading to Jamaica

Jamaica, home to rum and reggae, is set to welcome many more Scandinavian travellers this winter with the introduction of two new, direct flights from Stockholm Arlanda Airport to Montego Bay through the charter tour operators Ving and Fritidsresor.


From 23 November 2013 until 15 March 2014, holidaymakers choosing to travel with Ving will be able to fly direct into Montego Bay airport on the fortnightly flight which will depart on a Saturday. Ving also offers a range of hotels for visitors looking to book accommodation for 14 nights, including Couples Negril, Sandals Montego Bay and Iberostar Rose Hall. Fritidsresor will also begin a fortnightly flight departing on a Monday from 16 December 2013 to 10 March 2014, which will offer travellers flying from Stockholm a second direct flight into Montego Bay and six hotels to choose from.

Ving will serve the route using an A330-200, which offers a seat capacity of 323 passengers, and Fritidsresor plan to use one of their brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner on the second route.
