(CNS): Due to the current civil unrest in Kingston, Jamaica, Cayman Airways has now confirmed that it will be making adjustments to its flight service to and from Jamaica. CAL said that Flight 600 on Tuesday, May 25, will depart Grand Cayman to Kingston as normal. However, Flight 601 from Kingston will stop in Montego Bay to accommodate those passengers who may not be able to make it to Kingston. On Thursday, Friday and Sunday (May 27, 28 and 30) Flight 606 will depart Grand Cayman to Kingston early at 4:30pm and Flight 607 will leave Kingston at 6:15pm, two and a half hours earlier than originally scheduled.

CAL said it would also be waiving any change fees for travel to and from Jamaica through the end of May.
 
Air Jamaica has cancelled flights as a result of the violence in the country’s capital. According to advisories on the airline’s website, flights from Kingston scheduled to depart this evening for Fort Lauderdale and New York have been cancelled. The flight from Fort Lauderdale to Jamaica has also been cancelled. Passengers are being advised to contact the airline for further details.  Air Jamaica said operations continue as scheduled at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay.
 
The airline said passengers booked to and from Kingston who are affected by the cancellations may be re-accommodated at no additional cost within three days of their original date of travel. Passengers who are able to make their way to Montego Bay may be accommodated without additional collections or fees.
