From Travel Weekly:

With the Caribbean region set to host the Cricket World Cup 2007 from March 5 through April 28 and with hotel rooms at a premium on some of the islands which are hosting matches, Air Jamaica has rescheduled several flights between south Florida and the Caribbean so that cricket fans can fly in and out of the region on the same day to catch a piece of the action.

The revised schedule has JM038 departing Fort Lauderdale en route to Kingston, Jamaica, on March 13, 19 and 24 and April 24 at 6:45 a.m.; the return JM039 flight departs Kingston at 7:30 p.m. and arrives in Fort Lauderdale at 10:10 p.m.

The carrier also scheduled charter flights from Barbados and Jamaica for the semi-final round in Jamaica on April 24 and for the finals, which will take place in Barbados on April 28.

A special charter will depart Barbados April 24 at 5:10 a.m. and arrive in Kingston at 7 a.m. The return flight will depart Kingston at 7:45 p.m. for Barbados via St. Lucia.

On April 25, two flights will depart Kingston for St. Lucia at 2:30 a.m. and return on the same day at 9 p.m. so that fans can view the second semi-final match.

Air Jamaica will operate two flights on April 28 from Kingston to Barbados at 2:30 a.m., returning to Jamaica at 9 p.m. following the final match.
