Transport Minister Mike Henry says the Tinson Pen aerodrome is to be relocated to the proposed Vernamfield Aerotropolis in Clarendon.

The Transport Minister, who was contributing to the Sectoral Debate in Parliament yesterday, said the Jamaica Defence Force Air Wing will also be relocated to Vernamfield as part of the multibillion-dollar development set for southwest Clarendon.

He says the relocation of Tinson Pen, as well as the proposed building of a logistics park, is being done as part of preparations for the privatisation  of the Norman Manley International Airport.
