Air Jamaica takes check-in to the beach

NEW YORK -- Air Jamaica's new beachside check-in service is a two-for-one deal.

The check-in program gives vacationers more time in the sun and eliminates the inconvenience of checking in at the airport long before the scheduled departure of their homebound flight.

While still at the resort, passengers can check in their luggage and receive boarding passes. They then can return to the beach to soak up more sun and rum before leaving for the airport.

The process eliminates the hassle of dragging luggage to the airport and the inconvenience of long lines at the check-in counter.

The service now is available at 15 resorts in Jamaica, and the list is growing.
