The Airports Authority of Jamaica was established in 1974 under the “Airports Authority Act” as an independent statutory body, with initial responsibility (ownership and management) for the nation’s two international airports; namely Norman Manley International Airport and Sangster International Airport. Our offices are located on the grounds of the Norman Manley International Airport.
