“Jamaica is open for business and, once again, the resilience of the Jamaican people is on full display”

July 5 - Jamaica is welcoming back airport and cruise ship arrivals now that it has emerged from Hurricane Beryl predominantly unscathed.

The hurricane passed by the island on July 3.

Jamaica is open for business and, once again, the resilience of the Jamaican people is on full display,” said Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett.

He added: “We are grateful that there has been no wide-scale impact to our general tourism infrastructure and our tourism industry is fully operational. Our message to our partners and visitors is Jamaica is ready for you, so come back to the destination you love.

Sangster International Airport (SIA) in Montego Bay re-opened at 6 p.m. July 4.

Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) in Kingston re-opened at 5 a.m. July 5.

Ian Fleming International Airport (IFIA) in Ocho Rios is also currently open.

Jamaica’s cruise ports (Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Falmouth) are open as well.

A statement from the Jamaica Tourist Board advises travellers to contact their travel advisor and airline provider for updates before arriving at the airports.

We are ready, willing, and more than able to welcome our guests back to our beautiful island,” said Donovan White, Director of Tourism for the JTB.

In the first five months of 2024 Jamaica welcomed more than two million visitors, more than ever reported during the period of January to May.
