Traveling by air to Jamaica?

You should make arrangements to arrive at the Donald Sangster International Airport (MBJ) which is located in Montego Bay.  This is the closest airport to the conference site.  All other airports are at considerable distance from which you will incur considerable ground transportation time and cost to the conference hotel.

The Donald Sangster International Airport (MBJ), also called the Montego Bay Jamaica Airport, is truly the gateway to Jamaica for tourists, welcoming  over three million passengers per year. This is the most popular airport in Jamaica.

Located in Montego Bay, The Donald Sangster International Airport is only an hour’s drive to Negril and ninety minutes to Ocho Rios. 

More information on this airport can be located at:
