ST. LOUIS — Direct flights to Jamaica via Frontier Airlines will start early next year from St. Louis’ Lambert International Airport.
The flights to Montego Bay were announced by Frontier officials last week. The nonstop flights will be a seasonal offering beginning in February.
“We are eager to see Frontier’s seasonal nonstop service to Montego Bay on our airport’s schedule,” Lambert Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said in a statement on Frontier’s website. “Montego Bay is one of our passengers’ favorite destinations.”
The news comes at a point where Lambert has been restoring international nonstop flights. These flights were stalled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The return of international flights began with adding nonstop service to key points in Europe. This includes the addition of nonstop service to Frankfurt, Germany. It marked the first time in two decades that Lambert’s frequent fliers could fly to Europe without a layover. In addition, service was restored to Toronto in May.
Montego Bay is the third largest city of Jamaica, offering a variety of beaches, resorts, and ecological tours.
