Domestic Aerodromes

The 3 domestic aerodromes and Ian Fleming International Airport are critical to Jamaica's air transportation system. Their proximity to major resorts makes them especially important in the intra-island movement of tourists, leisure and business passengers, as well as light cargo around the island.

The 3 domestic aerodromes are:

  • Tinson Pen                            Situated in the capital city of Kingston
  • Ken Jones                             10 km west of Port Antonio
  • Negril                                    7 km north of Negril Point.

The Ian Fleming International Airport (formerly Boscobel Aerodrome) is a facility that now supports domestic as well as international aviation.
