Community in action against exorbitant plane fares to Jamaica & the Caribbean
FFBJ is lobbying for the reduction of airfares to Jamaica and the Caribbean and to increase the checked baggage allowance from one to two. Our lobbying efforts are extremely important to the Jamaican Diaspora and people of the Caribbean who resides in the UK, and or unable to return home to their homeland due to the high cost of airfares.
The target of our lobbying efforts are British Airways and Virgin Airlines, which are the two prominent airlines for flights to Jamaica and the Caribbean. We are penetrating the UK community with our grassroots campaign galvanizing communities within every city/town to join the movement and sign our petition.
Our goal is to get 10,000 signatures that we will then use to request a meeting with British Airlines and Virgin Airlines to discuss this issue.
. If you would like to be a community volunteer for our lobbying efforts, please send information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
