Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett says Jamaica will be getting back to the full complement of flights from the United Kingdom this morning, when a further 16 weekly flights will begin arriving in the country.
This as Jamaica’s tourism sector continues to rebound from the Covid-19 pandemic.
In weighing in on the development, Senior Advisor and Senior Strategist in the Tourism Ministry, Delano Seiveright, says the flights will be coming from several airlines and cities in the UK.
Meanwhile, Mr. Seiveright says the airline, Virgin Atlantic, is exploring the possibility of a daily service to Jamaica.
