The carrier scratched JM 037 from Kingston to Fort Lauderdale at 5:35 p.m., JM 036 from Fort Lauderdale to Kingston at 9:25 p.m. and JM 017 from Kingston to New York at 7:25 p.m.

In addition, four flights on Tuesday have been rescheduled with later departure times. They are JM 015 from Kingston to New York, now departing at 7:40 a.m.; JM 014 from New York to Kingston, now departing at 1:40 p.m.; JM 031 from Kingston to Fort Lauderdale, now departing at 8 a.m.; and JM 030 from Fort Lauderdale to Kingston, now departing at 11:40 a.m. 

Operations are normal at Sangster Airport in Montego Bay.
