Regional carrier Caribbean Airlines (CAL) will resume flights between Jamaica and the Bahamas on July 31.

Caribbean Airlines said it will resume weekly flights between Kingston and Nassau on July 31.

The airline said the resumption of the weekly service is part of its phased roll out of commercial operations in its Jamaica hub. The flight will leave from Kingston, Jamaica at 12:35 p.m. on Friday each week and from Nassau, Bahamas at 4:30 p.m. that same day.

However, each passenger making the trip to Jamaica will need to complete an online screening and application to get the necessary approvals for entry. Once approved, customers are encouraged to follow the instructions in the response email to download their travel authorisation document.

CAL had resumed service between Kingston and New York earlier this month.

“Persons who are unable to present the downloaded approval authorisation with the unique barcode may not be accepted for travel”, the airline stated in a release yesterday.

CAL continued, “Persons will not be allowed to travel, without meeting the requirements as outlined by the Jamaica Ministry of Health and Immigration Services.”

What’s more, the CAL said it will resume twice weekly flights between Kingston, Jamaica and Antigua and Barbados as of July 25.

It had previously returned to its Kingston/New York route on July 6.
