Consider: the flight takes approximately 35 minutes one way. The fares can range between USD65 and USD80 per adult, one way. The Knutsford Express trip, which provides a highly rated service, costs much less at JAD2,700 per adult one way (around USD27), but takes approximately 4 hours. If you hire a private tourism focused taxi it may cost USD200, again travelling for approximately 4 hours.
Some of the pros and cons travelling via plane between Mobay and Kingston are:
- This is the shortest option with respect to time and allows for more hours of exploration in Kingston during the day.
- Flights are pricey relative to the Knutsford Express coach service.
- Flying requires going through airports which some people find inherently stressful.
- By flying you miss out on the remarkably pretty drive across the island and the information that a driver/guide can provide.
So, flying is an option to consider. For more information on available flights check out InterCaribbean Airways at www.intercaribbean.com .
