Jetblue Airways and Caribbean Airlines have resumed full operation between the John F. Kennedy (JFK) airport and Montego Bay's Sangster International.
Both carriers were grounded as a result of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in the northeast United States.
The phased resumption began Thursday with Jetblue operating at 50 per cent capacity into the tourism capital, Montego Bay, out of the New York airport.
It also operated at 90 per cent capacity between Boston and Sangster.
"We're diligently rebooking all the customers but we ask them to be patient as thousands have been affected," Jetblue's manager of corporate communications, Latin America and the Caribbean, Mateo Lleras told The Gleaner.
The jetblue official is however, urging customers to check the status prior to their flights.
The one airport that remains a challenge for the carrier is LaGuardia (LGA), which may not open for some time due to infrastructure damage caused by the storm.
According to Lleras, the airport field conditions are only one part of the recovery solution in New York – public transportation and roadway conditions must be in reasonable condition before plans are made to return to full schedule.
