Air Jamaica Express was an airline based in Kingston, Jamaica and before folding operated as a subsidiary of Air Jamaica. It operated domestic and inter island scheduled flights and charter services. The airline was established in 1973 as Jamaica Air Taxi, and later operated as Trans-Jamaican Airline until it was taken over by Gordon Stewart who also controlled Air Jamaica in 1994.

When Air Jamaica was renationalized in December 2004, responsibility for Air Jamaica Express remained with Stewart and his organization. The airline struggled financially and after attempts to reorganize and secure additional capital were unsuccessful, the airline ceased operations on October 14, 2005. The JQ code assigned by the IATA was later reassigned to Jetstar Airways.
