Flights from Kingston to U.S. normally go through Miami, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, or NYC. There are several flights a day; travel to and from Kingston is convenient. - May 2022

Easy from the US. - May 2022

We are from Virginia. One of the things we like about this post is that flights to the US start at $200 round trip. Traveling home is cheap and easy. NO JET LAG. - Jan 2020

It takes about eight to ten hours to get to the West Coast. There are no direct flights there from Kingston. - Aug 2018

Primarily the northeastern US. There is a 4-hour direct flight from NYC. - Jun 2018

Direct flights to NYC, Atlanta, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale from Kingston. Southwest flies from the airport in Montego Bay which opens a few more options. - Mar 2017

East Coast, no direct flights, must go through Atlanta - Apr 2016

New York. 3.5 - 4 hour direct non-stop flights to and from Kingston with JetBlue and Caribbean Airlines. American Airlines connects via Miami (2.5 hour flight) and then onto Kingston (90 minute flight). Delta now offers service to and from Kingston via Atlanta (2.5 hour flight from Kingston). - Dec 2014

We frequently fly to NY which there are direct flights to on Jetblue, Caribbean Air, Delta and Fly Jamaica. A lot of other destinations connect through Atlanta and Miami. - Oct 2014

North Florida. 2-hour flight with 1-hour layover in Miami. - Mar 2014

Midwestern US. 2 hour flight to Miami, and then on to home. It's easy to get to Miami and Fort Lauderdale, but apart from that it's hard to get anywhere that doesn't have a large Jamaican population. Boston, NYC and DC are easy, the midwest and the East coast are expensive. Sometimes you can get charter flights from MoBay during the tourist season, but even that is tough. Delta just entered the market, so that might bring costs down a bit. It's much harder to get around the Caribbean or off the island in general than I had anticipated. - Dec 2013

Baltimore, MD. Connection through Miami. About 5 hours total with layover. - Aug 2011

Maryland. It is a 6-hour plane trip with a layover usually in Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. - Sep 2010

Florida, 1-1/2hours. - Jul 2010

My home base is Toronto, Canada. It takes about 5 hours to get there, most flights have to layover in Miami. - May 2010
