Jamaica welcomed its two-millionth visitor to the island for the year today.

The country achieved the milestone this afternoon when American Airlines Flight 380 from Miami, Florida arrived at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, St James at 3:50 p.m.

This is a major achievement for the country as it is the first time Jamaica is welcoming more than two million visitors over a one-year period.

Tourism minister Dr Wykeham McNeill, Director of Tourism John Lynch, and Mayor of Montego Bay Councillor Glendon Harris are expected to participate in a welcome reception at the airport.
