Additional Airlift

Director of Tourism, Paul Pennicook, says Jamaica is set to benefit from 60-thousand additional airline seats during the 2015-2016 winter tourist season.

The boost in airlift is driven primarily by the US market, which alone accounts for 50-thousand seats.

Mr. Pennicook says several additional flights from US carriers such as American, Southwest and Frontier, will land in Montego Bay.

Also airlift will be coming from Gothenberg in Sweden, Dublin in Ireland and Oslo in Norway.

Mr. Pennicook was addressing the opening ceremony of the Jamaica Product Exchange 2015, in Montego Bay, St. James.

The exchange aims to bring together local and international players in the tourism industry in an effort to improve and showcase Jamaica’s tourism product.
