Two low-cost airlines to commence service to Jamaica

Two more airlines have announced plans to commence service to Jamaica.
 
Denver-based low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is to begin offering service between Philadelphia and Jamaica.
 
Frontier says starting February 10, 2019 it will begin a new seasonal route between Philadelphia International Airport and Sangster International Airport.
 
It is among six new U.S. routes Frontier officials announced yesterday. 
 
The US carrier now serves 103 cities and 44 states, including at least 24 out of  Philadelphia International Airport. 
 
The other airline is ultra low cost   Swoop that will be extending its reach to the Caribbean by adding seasonal flights to Jamaica from Hamilton in Canada.
 
The WestJet Airlines subsidiary will fly twice a week from the John C. Munro Airport to Montego Bay between December 15 and April 24.
 
Its business model is based on passengers paying ancillary fees for additions such as bags, premium seats, and Wi-Fi that inflate travel costs depending on individual passenger needs.
 
Swoop operates a fleet of  four Boeing 737-800 aircraft and will add two more planes by the end of  the year.
