Jamaica’s tourism arrival number continue to climb, six months since the country reopened its borders for international tourism. 

In fact, the country reported its highest seven-day arrival figures since the reopening for the period Dec. 22-28, with just over 21,000 passengers arriving to the island. 

That included 16,841 passengers arriving to Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport and another 4,203 passengers at Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston. 

“This is welcome news for us as an industry as we see an uptick in visitor arrivals and close the year on a positive note. The Christmas holidays provided the destination a well-needed boost, which we hope will be an indicator of what we can expect in the New Year,” said Donovan White, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “All stakeholders remain positive and believe that the air seats secured for Winter 2020/2021 will further bolster our recovery efforts.”

In total, 376,044 passengers have arrived in Jamaica since the tourism reopening on June 15.
