Spirit Airlines will begin offering new, nonstop service from Bradley International Airport to Montego Bay, Jamaica for the first time, Gov. Ned Lamont announced Thursday.

State officials and advocates have been working for years to establish nonstop service to Jamaica from New England’s second-busiest airport.

The nonstop service is scheduled to launch on Dec. 15. It will operate year-round, four times weekly. 

Lamont said that Connecticut is home to the fifth-largest population of residents with Jamaican ancestry in the United States. According to census data, there are more than 56,000 in the state.

Kevin A. Dillon, executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority, said Bradley has been looking for an airline to establish nonstop Jamaica service in an effort to meet the community’s needs.

“I have no doubt that this service will be successful, and I am proud that Bradley International Airport will be able to offer convenient connectivity for the state’s strong Jamaican population, their friends and their relatives,” Dillon said.

In August, Breeze Airways began offering nonstop service between Bradley and Las Vegas.
