Fly Jamaica Airways (Kingston Norman Manley) has taken delivery of its first widebody aircraft, a B767-300(ER), N767WA (msn 24876), formerly with North American Airlines (New York JFK). The twinjet adds to the carrier's existing B757-200 used on flights to New York JFK, Toronto Pearson, and Georgetown Cheddi Jagan.

"We're in for the long haul. The second plane is there to enhance our route structure, plus create new routes within the Caribbean and South America," Captain Paul Ronald Reece, airline chairman and CEO, told the Jamaica Observer. "The plan is to have two B757s and two B767s, that's the ultimate plan."

Reese added that the aircraft will be deployed into revenue service once it is inspected and certified by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA).

Founded in 2012, Fly Jamaica Airways is a partnership between Guyana-born Capt. Paul Ronald Reece (Reese is also the owner of Guyana's Wings Aviation) and three Jamaican shareholders including Chief Operating Officer (COO) Captain Lloyd Tai and the manager of in-flight services, Christine Steele.
