Jamaica’s Montego Bay Airport Debuts Enhancements

Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica, has announced several new additions to enhance the guest experience. These include the expansion of the immigration hall and departure lounge, upgraded retail space and the opening of the Bob Marley (One Love) restaurant. The airport also received a runway extension and widened taxiway, providing more safety and allowing for the accommodation of larger aircraft, including the Airbus A380.

“As Jamaica’s most highly trafficked airport and the first and last thing a stopover visitor experiences of our island, it is critical that the Montgomery Bay facility provides a smooth, seamless and enjoyable ambiance,” said Edmund Bartlett, Jamaica’s minister of tourism. “The addition of the Bob Marley restaurant is particularly welcomed, allowing us to share Jamaica’s unique musical and culinary heritage with travelers from around the world in tribute to the great reggae artist’s legacy.”

The restaurant is named after the legendary Jamaican musician, Bob Marley. It aims to offer a taste of traditional Jamaican cuisine combined with the spirit of reggae.

“As the centerpiece of the augmentations at Sangster International Airport, the new restaurant not only pays homage to iconic Jamaican musician, Bob Marley, but helps us shine a spotlight on Jamaican culture as a whole,” said Donovan White, director of tourism, Jamaica Tourist Board. “Its in-terminal location ensures that visitors can experience the magic of Jamaican irie vibes and cuisine from the moment they step on or off the plane, so they’re more immersed throughout their time on island.”

With the continued growth of Jamaica’s tourism sector and an increasing number of international visitors flocking to the island, Sangster International Airport is undergoing significant expansion and modernization. The $70 million runway extension opened in early August.
