Frequent-flier program

Air Jamaica's 7th Heaven Fly Free program rewards passengers by number of flights traveled rather than by an accumulation of miles.

When a passenger flies seven round-trips on a particular route within two years, he or she receives a free trip on that same route. Fly first-class on five of those flights and the free ticket will be for first-class travel.

A traveler who is unable to take seven trips within two years can exchange some of those trip credits for a half-priced ticket.

There are no blackout periods in the program.Travelers can earn flight credits by flying certain routes on Delta Air Lines, Air Canada and Virgin Atlantic.
