Operations return to normal at NMIA

Published:Sunday | September 10, 2017 | 11:16 AM

Normal operations have resumed at the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) in Kingston.

There had been no flights in and out of the airport since Friday afternoon when a lightning storm damaged the airport’s radar and communication networks.

Last night, the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA) said limited Air Traffic Services would be provided to facilitate aircraft movement within Jamaica’s Flight Information Region by 11 o’clock.

It said incoming, outbound and over-flights would begin to operate within Jamaica’s airspace, as the JCAA gets closer to achieving full restoration of Air Traffic Services. 

It said passengers booked on cancelled flights from yesterday or Friday should contact their travel agent or the airline’s customer care number for rebooking options.  

The JCCA said passengers should make contact with their respective airlines before arriving at the airport.
