With over 30 years of service and the most modern fleet in the western
hemisphere, Air Jamaica is truly “The World’s Best Airline to the Caribbean.
Air Jamaica began operations in 1966 as the first Jamaican based
international airline. It was governed by a tripartite agreement between the
Government of Jamaica, BWIA, and BOAC (now British Airways). The name Air
Jamaica was changed on April 1, 1969 to Air Jamaica Limited, and Jamaica’s
first official airline was born with the Government of Jamaica holding
majority shares in the airline. Air Canada held a minority interest and
provided equipment, technology, training, pilots, and some top management.
Then in 1984, the Jamaican Government acquired the airline through a “buy
back” agreement with Air Canada. Ten years later, in 1994, the Government of
Jamaica embarked on a privatization exercise. Gordon “Butch” Stewart led Air
Jamaica Acquisition Group (AJAG) acquired majority ownership of the national
airline with the government retaining a minority stake. In 2004, after
severe turbulence in the airline industry and massive financial losses, the
Government of Jamaica reclaimed full control of the airline. Businessman,
is chairman of the board and veteran airline executive, Mike Conway
is the President and CEO of Air Jamaica.
