KINGSTON, JAMAICA – Destination Jamaica ranks at the top for bookings by US travelers heading to the Caribbean in coming weeks and months.
The announcement was made during a high-level meeting lead by Tourism Minister, Hon Edmund Bartlett today, between Senior Executives of Flight Centre Travel Group Limited (FLT), one of the world’s largest travel groups at their US headquarters in New Jersey and JTB team members.
The Executives also shared optimism for 2023 and 2024 with strong bookings for Jamaican vacations.
“This is great news as we actively work on recovery in the US, which is our biggest source market. Based on these booking numbers Jamaica may experience the best summer ever since the pandemic,” said Minister Bartlett.
Flight Centre is a 40-year-old travel agency that is headquartered in Australia with offices in the United States and other countries across the globe.
“Part of our recovery strategy is meeting with our long-standing tourism partners like Flight Centre to get a feel of market sentiment and projections and we are happy that Jamaica remains top of mind,” added Minister Bartlett.
“We are aggressively working towards recovery, and we cannot do this without partners like Flight Centre. As travel rebounds, we aim to ensure that Jamaica is the first choice for visitors,” said Donovan White, Director of Tourism, Jamaica.
Jamaica Tourist Board and Ministry of Tourism team members who were apart of the discussions include Donnie Dawson, Deputy Director of Tourism, Americas, Francine Carter- Henry, Manager, Tour Operators and Airlines, Delano Seiveright, Senior Strategist and Advisor, and Fiona Fennell, Public Relations and Communications Manager.
