15 new air services signed for the benefit of Jamaica holidays
Jamaica will soon be getting a boost in the number of airlines servicing the island as during the International Civil Aviation Organization Conference held recently in Montego Bay, as many as 15 new Air Service Agreements were signed.
A new range of flights will help Jamaica holidays industry as it improves the connection of the Caribbean island to many other important world destinations. Jamaica's Free Air Policy is to get a boost from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Conference, which ended last Friday with the signing of 15 new Air Services Agreements with other member states at the Conference.
This means greater air capacity and flexibility for Jamaica holidays as they'll be welcoming a range of airlines that will soon begin flying to this popular Caribbean holiday destination. There was high praise for the International Conference on Air Services Negotiations (ICAN) which took place during the ICAO, as all the delegates reported success in finalising Air Services agreements and arrangements over the period.
The conference, which was held in Montego Bay from 28th June to 2nd July 2010, hosted over 150 delegates and representatives from 40 member states, who all participated in over 200 meetings. Over 60 Air Services agreements and arrangements were signed during the duration of the conference.
At the closing of the press conference, director of ICAO's Regional Office in Mexico City, Loretta Martin, thanked the Jamaican Government and the civil aviation authority for hosting it, and the delegates for the work achieved.
"Congratulations to all of you for the outstanding work and results that we have seen from this very intense week, and I certainly congratulate you all on behalf of the Secretary General and all of the ICAO staff," she stated.
Jamaican Minister of Transport and Works, Mike Henry, who declared the conference open on 28th June, also addressed the closing press conference, during which he emphasised that the government of Jamaica had placed great importance on the conference and how such a conference was of great significance to the future of air traffic and the servicing of Jamaica holidays by worldwide airlines.
"This evening is not only about Jamaica, it is more about every country that's visiting here, it's more about whether you leave here satisfied that you have achieved something by being in Jamaica: That in each country, in exchanging your own developmental process, you would have recognised that the aeronautical outreach is perhaps the most important outreach in the world," he said.
He added that as Jamaica holidays move to build out its multi-modal air transportation system, with the aim of being a global transportation hub, every regional carrier would stand to benefit from the expansion.
