Jamaica is a perfect year-round destination

Jamaica Tourism expanding reach in GCC market

DUBAI, May 17, 2024

The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) is focused on expanding its reach in the GCC market in recognition of the growing interest in Caribbean travel among GCC residents, and is actively investing in the targeted development of the market to increase visitation figures.

JTB said travellers from the GCC can easily reach Jamaica through convenient flight connections via major airlines linking through the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Canada.

Passengers from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have several airline choices for flights to its main airports in Montego Bay and Kingston. Emirates, Etihad Airways, British Airways, and Air Canada offer routes with convenient connections. Qatar Airways also provides suitable connections to major US airports such as New York, Miami, and Chicago, offering additional options for travellers from the GCC region.

Other GCC countries can access Jamaica via connections through the UAE, enhancing accessibility to the island.

“As part of our strategic vision, the Jamaica Tourist Board is committed to investing in the GCC market and enhancing awareness of Jamaica's attractions among travellers in this region," said Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism of Jamaica.

"We believe there is immense potential for increased visitation from the GCC.

“Jamaica is an ideal destination for citizens and residents of the GCC countries seeking a unique and memorable vacation experience. With its blend of pristine beaches, lush mountains, vibrant music scene, and flavorful cuisine, Jamaica offers something for every traveller.

“The island's warm climate and welcoming atmosphere make it a perfect year-round destination,” said Director of Tourism, Donovan White.”

Recently, the Jamaica Tourist Board showcased its destination at the Arabian Travel Market 2024, held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from May 6-9. The JTB's exhibition stand served as a focal point for highlighting Jamaica's unique attractions, diverse tourism offerings and fostering engagement with industry partners from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. – TradeArabia News Service
