Gov’t Seeks Direct Flights From Africa to Jamaica
Transport and Mining Minister, Mike Henry has disclosed that the Government of Jamaica is reportedly aiming to sign strategic air services agreements with at least five African countries.
He revealed that talks have already begun with Kenya and South Africa.
The minister stated that the purpose of the air services agreements are to establish direct flights to Jamaica from the countries being targeted.
According to the minister, such agreements with African states will make it possible for travelers from the Asian and African continents to fly directly to this part of the world without the need for an in-transit visa.
“The outreach that I have here relates to the open skies, by flying people from the Far East across the African continent into Jamaica, Jamaica being the centrally located hub that distributes them across the globe, both here and backwards, because… everyone who lives in those countries – India, Japan… all (now) need an in-transit visa to mobilise,” the minister said.
