More British travellers stranded in Jamaica will be flown home on a second government charter flight.
Around 310 people will be able to use the flight which is due to depart from Kingston on June 3 for Heathrow.
This follows special services from the Bahamas, Cuba and Guyana, as well as a flight from Jamaica earlier this month in partnership with Tui.
The Foreign Office has also helped more 11,000 Britons return from the Caribbean to the UK via commercial routes, including 4,300 from Jamaica.
Minister for the Caribbean, Baroness Sugg, said: “I am very pleased we have been able to organise this special return flight for British travellers in Jamaica.
“Getting people home as quickly as possible remains our priority and this latest flight will mean that we have helped more than 11,000 Britons return to the UK from across the Caribbean.
“Our team in Jamaica will ensure that any British travellers who remain receive the support they need.”
High Commissioner to Jamaica, Asif Ahmad, added: “It has been a difficult time for British people waiting to return home from Jamaica.
“My team and I are pleased to offer this second charter flight from Kingston which would not be possible without the collaboration with the Jamaican authorities.
“I urge any Britons still in Jamaica wishing to return to the UK to book their flight as soon as possible.
“The UK government is working with the airline industry and host governments across the world to bring back British travellers to the UK as part of the plan announced by the foreign secretary Dominic Raab – with up to £75 million available for special charter flights to priority countries, focused on helping the most vulnerable travellers.”
