FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- As observers of
the summer Olympic Games know, Jamaica is now home to the fastest man and
woman in the world. Starting this January, American Airlines will offer a
fast new way to get to Jamaica -- nonstop service from Chicago.
American, a founding member of the global oneworld(R) Alliance, will
begin nonstop flights from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to
Montego Bay, Jamaica, on Jan. 31, 2009. Though American has long served
Montego Bay, it will be the airline's first-ever nonstop flight there from
American will operate one nonstop flight five days a week between
Chicago and Montego Bay, using Boeing 757 aircraft configured with 22 seats
in First Class and 166 seats in the Main Cabin. Convenient connecting
service in Chicago will make Montego Bay easily accessible from other
cities as well.
The new Chicago nonstop is part of an expansion of American Airlines
flights to Montego Bay that will begin in early November. On Nov. 2,
American will increase its schedule between Miami and Montego Bay from two
daily nonstop flights to three. On the same date, American will also
increase its service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Montego Bay from one
weekly flight to five weekly, and then to daily service in mid-December.

American operates service to Kingston, Jamaica, with flights from both
Miami and Fort Lauderdale. The Fort Lauderdale-Kingston service began
earlier this year.
