The Latest from Jamaica!


Rain, Rain, & More Rains

In only a few weeks the 2007 hurricane season will be history. But although we didn't get many scares from the winds this time around, we had lots of water, and the last few days was a good example.

This time, tropical storm Noel is the culprit.

The future of Air Jamaica
The JLP government is quite upset with the deal brokered with Virgin Atlantic.

A top level meeting was scheduled to be held today to discuss the future of Air Jamaica. Prime Minister Bruce Golding, Transport Minister Mike Henry, representatives of the Finance Ministry as well as airline officials were expected to be in attendance.

Mr. Henry says among the issues to be discussed are the controversial sale of the London route and the proposed privatisation of the airline. Stay tuned!

Sweet Deals to come to Jamaica!

A friend of mine alerted me to this one. Budget Travel has put together a 'real deal' package that includes: Round-trip airfare, five nights' accommodations, transfers, and all meals and drinks from $699 per person plus taxes of about $81. More on it here.
