Good news! Denver has just gotten a whole lot more international with 1 new direct flight to Caribbean and a possible flight to Ethiopia, the first which has already launched and the second which should be announced in the next few months. Now that travel is more on people’s radar than ever before, we know this summer is looking to be exciting when it comes to traveling.
On Frontier, there’s a brand new direct flight from Denver to Montego Bay that takes only 5 hours! If you’re looking for sunnier skies and less snow, then you can book flights now, as they were just introduced on February 24th. When we looked, flights were less than $350, making it an absolute steal.
What should you know about Jamaica if you’re thinking about visiting?
Besides amazing beaches and jungles, Jamaica’s culture and culinary-scene are world renowned. There’s an annual reggae fest in Montego Bay, and you can use U.S. Dollars (though it’s recommended to also have a few Jamaican dollars on hand as well.) Montego Bay, though not the capitol, has an amazing dining scene combined with a close proximity to nature and the nightlife. The tap water is safe to drink and there’s a ton of vegetarian and vegan options because it’s an essential of Rastafarianism. Plus, there’s a ton of amazing hikes you can do to mountains and jungles, waterfalls and more.
A possible flight to Ethiopia is also on the horizon.
In similar news, we’ve heard there’s potentially a flight from Denver to Ethiopia that could be launched in the next few months. Mayor Michael Hancock has been pushing for more flights from Denver to Africa for years and this flight could open up Colorado to Africa (in which the data suggests Ethiopia and Egypt are two of the top destinations for Denverites.)
Addis Ababa would be the city the flight would land in, and what’s cool is that Ethiopia borders 6 other countries, making more of the world accessible to you. But be warned, the rainy season there is no joke. In Ethiopia runs, it from Mid-June through to Mid-September. Take a culinary tour, hit up the National Museum, or hit up Avanti Restaurant & Wine Bar (not correlated to Avanti F&B but it’d be fun to visit this Avanti and see.)
