Jamaica opens third international airport named after Ian Fleming… Minister
Bruce Golding yesterday officially opened the island’s third international
airport at Boscobel in St Mary. Named in honour of late British author and
journalist Ian Fleming, who created James Bond, the Ian Fleming International
Airport will primarily handle private jets with specialised service for
scheduled charters.

The former Boscobel Aerodrome has been significantly
upgraded and boasts, among other things, a completely resurfaced and extended
runway.

It is expected to cater to the needs of high-end tourists and the
general aviation market. Several government officials, representatives from the
tourism sector, including chairman of Sandals Resorts Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart,
hotelier and former music mogul Chris Blackwell as well as members of the
Fleming family were present to witness the opening.

Fleming International Airport yesterday. At right is Transport and Works
Minister Mike Henry.
