TUI Group has indicated plans to expand capacity to Jamaica in summer 2023 with increased flights.
The announcement came following a meeting with senior Jamaica Tourist Board officials last week.
TUI currently operates up to ten flights flights a week to the island from Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham.
The flights support cruise and land stop over arrivals to the island with the aim to have up to eight flights dedicated to stop over arrivals by next summer, according to the Jamaica Tourist Board.
Tourism director Donovan White said: "Each flight carries roughly 340 passengers which means about 3,000 passengers spend 11 to 12 consecutive nights in the destination.
"This is a very positive step forward as we work towards full recovery from the fallout of the pandemic."
Jamaica tourism minister Edmund Bartlett said: "Part of Jamaica's recovery efforts has been to strengthen the partnership with our tourism stakeholders like TUI Group.
"Increasing flights signals confidence which will undoubtedly augur well for the destination in terms of arrivals and economic activity in terms of jobs and overall earnings."
