Sangster International Airport (MBJ) is the leading tourism gateway to the island of Jamaica – one of the world’s most beautiful and desired destinations.

Once notorious for the buccaneers and swashbuckling pirates who made the island their home over 300 years ago, Jamaica lies 550 miles south of Florida – at the very heart of the Caribbean. Today, the island is famous for the unique appeal of its scenic and rugged interior – the Blue Mountains rise to well over 7,000 feet – combined with the unmatched beauty of dazzling tropical beaches bordering the blue-green water of the Caribbean Sea. Each year, more and more visitors from around the globe are attracted by the island’s magic, its history and its world-class facilities.

Sangster International Airport (MBJ) is ideally located on the northwest coast of the island – at the centre of the country’s main tourism region and close to a wide range of hotel and resort facilities. The airport is within easy driving distance of the cruise ports at Montego Bay and Ocho Rios as well as the popular tourist town of Negril.

Sangster International Airport and Jamaica: an unbeatable partnership!
