    Default What time will we leave CSA for our flight?

    Question for anyone who returned recently--what time was your flight and when did you have to be in the lobby for the shuttle?

    We have a flight at 11:30am and my sister-in-law/hubby's flight is at 1:30pm on a Sunday. What time will we leave CSA? trying to decide if the flight is worth it!!

    Thanks!

    From CSS last year we left at 6am for an 11am flight. They usually try to have you at the sirport 3 hours before your flight.

    With an 11:30 am flight you will depart at approx 6:30 am and with a 1:30 pm flight you will depart at approx 8:30 AM If you want depart later you have to sign a release that will not hold Couples responsible if you do not make your flight

    They typically want to get you to the airport at least 2 hours before your flight. Being that it is approximately 70-80 minutes to the airport, you could expect to be in the lobby, boarding a shuttle around 8:00am-8:30am & 11:00am-11:30am respectively.

    Just got back from CSA last night.

    Our flight left MBJ at 2:30 p.m. & our shuttle left CSA at 10:00 a.m. (took us ~ 1 hr 20 min)

    Our friends left CSA on Sunday. Their flight was at 9:30 a.m. & they left CSA at 5:00 a.m. (yikes !!)

    A side note: we actually ended up leaving CSA at 10:15 bec/ we were waiting for one more couple. Their luggage was up front but they were nowhere to be found. The bellhop told us their policy was to wait 15 minutes for late-comers; after that you're out of luck & they leave w/o you.

    We had already printed out boarding passes & we were First Class & we did Club MoBay, so we were not worried about a 15 minute delay. But if other ppl had a little earlier flight & had to use the kiosk at MBJ to print boarding passes, then wait to check in luggage, then go through security, then they could have been cutting it closer.

    So, moral of the story -- show up to the shuttle on time !!

    We had a 4:15 flight on a Wednesday. We left CSA at noon. After picking up a couple at CN, we had a full shuttle. We had lots of time at the airport.

    We were just at Swept Away, and the return shuttle left the resort 4 hrs. before the flight time.

    I don't remember what it was for CSA/CN. We haven't been back to the Negril area since 2006. But we went to CSS this past March. Our flight was at 12:40pm and we left the resort at 8:30am. So 4 hours prior. I would think it would be about the same for the Negril side. Since the airport is a little bit closer from Negril than from Ocho. We got to the airport in plenty of time.

    Thanks! We would have to be at the Negril airport at 8:45am so we will just stuck with the shuttle since we would only be saving an hour or so.

    Just got back last night. Our flight was at 12:55pm, had to have our bags ready by 8am in our room. Shuttle left at 9am to go to Montego Bay. We picked up another couple from the couples Negril prior to leaving. Hope this helps!

    Busses to MoBay generally are scheduled to leave the resort on the hour throughout the morning and afternoon. You will be instructed to have your luggage outside your room for pickup an hour before your scheduled bus departure. Bus departure will be about four hours ahead of your scheduled flight time. Usually they will schedule on the conservative side in order to get you to the airport at least 2 hours prior. If you happen to have a particularly early or late flight you may be the only one on the bus, but they will make sure you get there.

    Something to consider, we always check on line while in Jamaica for changes to our outbound flight a day or two ahead to make sure there are no unforeseen surprises on the schedule for get-away day. You can also print out boarding passes in the computer lounge.
    See you at the beach!
