Jamaica recently welcomed its first scheduled international commercial flight into the Ian Fleming International Airport in Boscobel, St. Mary.
The flight, an InterCaribbean Airways Embraer120, brought 30 travelers to the island from Providenciales, Turks, and Caicos.
Passengers and crew were greeted by a delegation led by Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett.
Addressing a welcome ceremony on the airport’s grounds, Minister Bartlett hailed the regional origins of the flight.
“The presence today of the inaugural flight from a Caribbean Island into Boscobel is a bigger statement than what has been made,” he said.
“Today begins a new chapter in the aviation history of this area [and] in the connectivity between this piece of geography and the rest of the world,” he added.
