"Air Jamaica's new schedule has 218 weekly flights to 14 destinations between Jamaica and Toronto, New York, Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Curacao, Nassau and Havana. The airline will also offer service between New York and Barbados and New York and Grenada."

"With these changes the airlines fleet will be reduced to nine aircraft, the appropriate number required to effectively operate the new schedule," said the Air Jamaica statement. It added that the airline would also restructure existing leases and negotiate aircraft returns to accomplish this result."
