The road conditions in Jamaica are legendary, and rightfully so. Despite constant efforts to fix the roads, the hot sun, hard rain and constant pounding from cars and cargo trucks have made even paved roads uncomfortable to travel.

Jamaica is a small country; however a 100 mile trip can take 4 hours or more road conditions get especially difficult during the rainy season, and with on-going road construction, can lead to lengthy delays especially during peak hours.

Jamaica is a very lush and scenic country, a lot more can be seen by air in a lot less time.

AirLink Express is proud to say that every flight we operate is a scenic tour above the country.


AirLink Express will make sure all of your baggage arrives at your destination in as good a condition as it has been received. Although, we can’t guarantee it will not have had as much fun as you!
