New Airport In Jamaica To Cater To Private Jets

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Kingston, Jamaica – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

Jamaica is anticipating the opening of its third international airport next month, The Ian Fleming International Airport, located just five miles from Ocho Rios. Formerly known as the Boscobel Airstrip, the facility has undergone refurbishment and has been expanded to facilitate the arrival of private international aircraft as large as the Dash-8.

“Jamaica continues to add new tourism infrastructure and facilities to make visiting the destination more convenient and pleasurable,” said Jamaica’s Director of Tourism John Lynch. “Opening a third international airport allows travelers arriving by private aircraft to enjoy a facility with less air traffic and closer proximity to popular resort areas on the eastern part of the island, such as Ocho Rios and Port Antonio.”

The Ian Fleming International Airport will allow for easy, efficient and timely processing of small aircraft and passengers. Features of the facility include a passenger lounge, pilot briefing room, customs and immigration clearance, and other specialized services for private flights.
