So, Eyesers, are you dreaming of a … white Christmas? Like Really? But allyuh look story, eh, eh.

Methinks, more like … “I’ll be home for Christmas – not a dream, but reality.

A mother and child are the first to grace Fly Jamaica’s One Team, One Dream, a charming B767-300ER, with 246 seats – 234 economy and 12 business class. It’s one of the top airlines in the world.

“I am looking forward to travelling in this amazing new Fly Jamaica aircraft, it looks so beautiful,” an excited Keisha Wills, with six-month-old daughter Tristan told Eyes last Monday at Pearson International Airport, Terminal 3.

Yes, the Eyes guy was up close and personal with the plane.

Fly Jamaica’s social corporate responsibility includes supporting the Guyana Festival and especially in December, emphasis on tourism, visiting friends and families. Same sentiments to our brothers and sisters in the Land We Love, Jamaica!

Ah! Yes. ‘Tis a dream come true. In an exclusive  interview with Fly Jamaica’s Director Roxanne Reece,  said, “Our B767-300ER aircraft is a 100 % increase in our fleet size, to provide a reliable transportation product to all our customers.”

And an enthused businessman in the Guyanese community known as Sherlocky, The Professor, the founder of the Guyana Music Awards, said he is looking forward to enjoying the flight to his native land, Guyana.

Sales and Marketing Manager Edward Van Luien – who made it possible for access granted to the Eyes guy – said: “Fly Jamaica, One Team, One Dream continues to grow the world-class airline, where the customers are always first; building a profitable company founded on transparency, accountability and integrity; and create a positive work environment that our employees thrive in.”

Reece is of the opinion that our executives and young people must build a career based on their passions and then trust in its strength. “I believe that if you develop skills you truly enjoy excercising, you can take off to just anywhere.”

Indeed, Fly Jamaica’s continued commitment to these objectives will ensure that Fly Jamaica Airways is the airline of choice for Jamaicans, Guyanese and the wider Caribbean family, and everyone wanting to experience true Caribbean hospitality in air travel.
