The Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA) has commissioned Ineco to carry out the master plan for Ian Fleming International Airport, located in the north of the island. The airport, named in 2011 after the English writer who wrote the James Bond series of novels while residing on the island, operates commercial flights and private jets to and from the United States and other Caribbean islands.
The works include demand studies for different time horizons and definition of the development of the airport’s terminal area, airfield and access and auxiliary infrastructures. The strategy of the JCAA is to develop the airport as a regional mini hub and enable it to operate larger planes than at present.
Jamaica is one of the main overseas tourist destinations for the US and Canada. Ineco has been collaborating with the JCAA on different projects for more than a decade, including the master plan for Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay.
