Jamaican Air Space Remains Open in Limited State

The Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority, JCAA, says Jamaica’s airspace will remain open in a limited state for the next few days as the Air Traffic services continue to repair damaged equipment.

Director of the JCAA, Nari William-Singh, says this means air services to and from the island will only be available between the hours of 7AM and 7PM.

The JCAA, says last Friday the radar and communication networks at the Norman Manley International Airport were damaged from a lightning strike.

Air services were initially closed on the weekend with limited service restored on Sunday.

Mr. William-Singh says the Air Traffic Controllers are working to boost service to 11PM.

However, he’s unable to give an assessment at this time as to how the limited service over the last few days has affected the country.
