    Default Early Morning

    We are taking the Air Jamaica 6am flight from Philadelphia on 12/10/10 and arriving in Jamaica at 9:30am...can someone tell me if the airport will be crowded and will we get to CSA quicker because of the early arrive.

    Earlier arrival at MoBay = earlier arrival at your resort. Time spent in line at Immigration/Customs is dependent on incoming traffice, but not normally more than an hour at most.

    You'll actually do better at 9:30am than most flights. During the morning, they usually get 3-4 flights in during an hour (if that). From noon to 2pm, they get about 8-10 per hour.

    And, as Chris said, you'll get to the resort earlier!

    taken that flight out of philly a few times expect to be on the beach by 12:15. Heads up after you get off the plan i would suggest you walk briskly to get ahead of as many folks who ultimately do not have their paperwork filled out.

    Hi - That's A GREAT Flight AND a GREAT time - we have done it!! We were the only plane arriving at that time ! Customs & Immigrations were a BREEZE!!! We were at the resort before 10:30 a.m. (we gained an hour when we arrived - that won't happen in December).... so figure 11:30a.m. at the resort!! Have a FANTASTIC Time!!!

    Not only is the arrival time a factor, but the day of the week, & the time of the year all factor into how quickly you can get through the airport and on your way. Then there is the traffic factor--which can again vary depending on the time, day, time of year etc.

    We usually land by 6:30-6:45am and are the first ones through Immigation and Customs..which is pretty quick at that time of day....you will still be plenty early to get out quickly.

    As Chris says it depends on incoming traffic and I know we are on the AJ flight from NY (JFK) and we arrive the same time as you. They have been moving quickly since they redid the airport. Enjoy!
