Air Jamaica was the national airline of Jamaica. It was founded on August 27, 1963, after the government of Jamaica decided not to invest in British West Indian Airways (BWIA). Dubbed Jamaica Air Service Ltd., its shareholders were the government of Jamaica, the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC), and BWIA. BWIA's employees in Jamaica were transferred to the new airline. From May 2011 Air Jamaica was owned and operated by Caribbean Airlines. Caribbean Airlines Limited, headquartered in Piarco, Trinidad and Tobago, had administrative offices for Air Jamaica located at Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, Jamaica. Air Jamaica ceased all operations during 2015.
