Jamaican Tourism Looks to Latin America


Jamaican Tourism Minister Ed Bartlett announced that the Jamaica Tourist Board had negotiated deals to bring 10,000 Latin American visitors to the island this year, with airline seats secured out of Brazil, Chile and Colombia. “We succeeded,” Bartlett said. “We were able to structure an arrangement which will be finalised to enable flights to begin from Brazil to Jamaica somewhere between November and December of this year.” Bartlett said South America had a “key value” for Jamaica, and pointed to the high population of Brazil in particular as a potential boost to the country’s tourism sector.
