The public is also being advised that there will be increased aerial activity involving various types of military aircraft in and around the Kingston Metropolitan Area until Friday.

This is part of the planned visit of United States President Barack Obama and several heads of state and governments and their delegations.

This aerial activity is being coordinated and monitored by the Jamaica Defence Force and the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority.

If there are any concerns regarding the activities of these aircraft, members of the public are asked to call the JDF Joint Information and Operations Centre at 960-8776.

Owners and operators of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and remotely piloted aerial systems are also being reminded of the need to coordinate the use of these aircraft with the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority prior to operation in order to avoid the aerial hazard they may pose.
