Fly Jamaica opens Brooklyn New York office

Even as it seeks to enhance an already laudable service to its customers, Fly Jamaica Airways has launched a Brooklyn, New York office.

Cutting the ribbon is Fly Jamaica’s Director of Marketing Kayla Reece (second from right) and Ms. Barbara Atherly flanked by Fly Jamaica staffers.

The Brooklyn office located at 1397 Nostrand Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, is the second United States- based Fly Jamaica office dedicated to selling tickets.

The airline has Guyanese couple Captain Paul Reece, the Chairman and CEO, Ms. Roxanne Reece its Managing Director at its helm. Their daughter Kayla Reece is the company’s ever-efficient Marketing Director.    

Indulging some questions ahead of the opening ceremony was Mrs Reece. She disclosed that the rationale behind opening the Brooklyn office was to target yet another area where Caribbean people are located in their numbers. “We found that there was a need for our people to access our services easily.”

The opening ceremony was blessed by religious leaders of the Christian, Muslim and Hindu communities.
Following the official opening segment, a reception to celebrate the opening was held at Trelawni Place at Utica Avenue also in Brooklyn.

Speaking at the forum, Captain Reece said, “This is a very important step in the expansion of Fly Jamaica Airways.”
At this juncture he stressed the airline vision to always “provide good services to our customers.” In achieving this goal he said “we really appreciate the support from everyone…everybody here and overseas have been supportive and we hope the support continues.”

According to Captain Reece, Fly Jamaica Airways, a still relatively small business, which took a long time to be realised, took solid root in 2011 but got approval to evolve on February 14, 2013. “The whole team has been working together to make it a wonderful operation,” said Captain Reece of Fly Jamaica.

Among those present at the opening ‘ceremony was the Consul General of the Guyana Consulate, Ms Barbara Atherly, and Vice Consul of the Jamaica Consulate, Ms. Yonna Bailey Magalhaes.

The new office adds to another Fly Jamaica office located at South Ozone Park, Queen’s, New York which like the Brooklyn office is dedicated to ticket sales.

However, customers can also purchase tickets at the airline’s JFK Airport office too.

Fly Jamaica has over the years been driven by a ‘One Team, One Dream’ motto. The Jamaica headquartered airline has been in operation a fleet of two aircraft.

But according to Mrs Reece the company is hoping to not only add a couple more routes in the near future but also add two more carriers by next year.

Currently the airline is able to cater to customers flying to four destinations: Guyana, Jamaica, Toronto and New York.

    I am happy to hear of this expansion. That’s giving the Caribbean people more choices by ways of flying to their countries. Quote me if I am wrong. I only know of Guyanese traveling home by way on Caribbean Airlines own by Trinidad. We are living in many states, sometimes you have to go from that state in order to catch a flight home. I truly hope that it can expand in the near future throughout the Tri-State regions.
