Jamaica reopens major airports after Hurricane Sandy

JAMAICA – Jamaica is reporting that its two major airports, Norman Manley International Airport (KIN) in Kingston and Sangster International Airport (MBJ) in Montego Bay, are now open and have resumed flight service.

Additionally, roads are clear to airports and to hotels in Kingston, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Negril, and the South Coast.

The island is being restored to normalcy following rain and winds from Hurricane Sandy. Certain locations where power outages occurred are now being restored.

All ports, including Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and the Historic Falmouth cruise port, are also operational.

Attraction operators are cleaning up and preparing to reopen.

At this time, no hotels in the resort areas of Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Negril, or the South Coast have reported structural damage.

Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the southeastern side of the island, which was affected the most by the storm. The highways throughout the country are now open and people are going about business as usual.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization is a destination member of the International Council of Tourism Partners (ICTP).
