    Default International Air Link to start schedule intra-island service

    I've spoken to the owner. They plan on introducing schedule service from Montego Bay to Negril and Montego Bay to Ocho Rios.

    Two brand new planes... Stay tuned...

    This is great news.
    A little competition is good for most businesses and more employment opportunities for Jamaica are welcome, I'm sure.

    How much are the flights now (Montego Bay to Ocho Rios)? We're going in late January 2011. if its reasonable, we'll fly instead of taking the bus.

    Default good news

    this is great news. when we first started flying into ocho in the late 90s it was 175.00 a couple. now 420.00. maybe a little competation will lower the price to something you can live with.

    That is good news. We love Timair & Curtis but competition is good. There is another airline, jamaicaairshuttle.com that was supposed to start flights from Negril Aerodrome last April. If you check out their site, they still say "soon" for Negril and the flights to Boscobel will start after the runway expansion which is currently underway. For now they just fly to & from Kingston from Mobay.

    We just returned from CSS. The driver told us that the drive 'over the moutains' would take as long as the drive from the airport????

    Bazil Jane,

    My understanding is yes, they will have flights between Ochi and Negril.

    Randymon, that's great information. If we are staying at CN for 4 nights and fly to Ochi to stay at CSS for 4 nights, will a Couples van pick us up from Boscbel?

    Randy,

    How about the plane perk reinstated for multiple re-peater over 10 times? Rewards the couples that keep coming back home!

    Very exciting news. We enjoy the van ride on arrival but have enjoyed the quick flight to Mobay going home. Reinstatement of the plane perk would be absolutely wonderful!!!!

    The competition used to really help keep the price down! Back in the day you could take TimAir (always has been the best IMO) but also Jamaica Air Link, AirNegril, and even AirJamaybe. My wife and I seldom fly anymore since the bus ride has improved so much over the past 10 years or so but it will sure be nice to have some competition back for these routes!

    I am about to book Timair for the beginning of Feb. 2011. When is this service going to begin? I really need to know soon, if possible!

    This is the e-mail I received when I inquired about using them in January, 2011.

    Thank you for your e-mail. TimAir Limited provides air taxi charters to Negril (not a scheduled service). Flying time is 15 minutes. Flights are only available during daylight hours.

    The one-way price is US $108.00 per person subject to a minimum of two
    passengers, inclusive of all fees and taxes. The round trip price is US
    $210.00 per person. These rates are guaranteed for 30 days.

    If you would like to make a reservation, please let us have the following
    additional information:

    1) The names of all passengers;
    2) Which airline, flight number and the expected arrival time of your
    international airline into Montego Bay;
    3) Which hotel you will be staying at in Negril.

    We would then send you a confirmation of your reservation with some simple
    instructions for your arrival in Montego Bay.

    We look forward to having you fly with TimAir Limited when you visit Jamaica.

    If you have any questions, please let us know.

    Sincerely,

    This thread is about International Airlink, not Tim Air.

    I know everything, and I'm always right (just ask my husband).

    This is what I've found. I'm not sure when they are going to start flying. Randymon told me that they have purchased two new twin engine planes.

    They have scheduled flight times. With TimAir they will pick you up and fly whenever.
