What airport do you use for Negril Jamaica? || Answered By Aneisha Dobson, Associate Writer

Before I proceed, let me say that you made an excellent vacation choice.

Negril, the capital of casual, is a beautiful tourist destination located on the western end of the island - in the parish of Westmoreland.

The town is known for its sandy beaches, turquoise waters and laid back atmosphere. However, what the town lacks is an airport that accommodates its international guests. Therefore, at this time no commercial flights can directly fly into Negril.

There is however the Negril Aerodrome that caters for domestic travels.

So what airport should an international tourist use?

Well, the first thing that you need to know is that there are currently three international airports in Jamaica.

They are:

  1. Sir Donald Sangster International Airport,
  2. Norman Manley International Airport and
  3. Ian Fleming International Airport

... located in Montego Bay, Kingston and St. Mary respectively.

However, Sir Donald Sangster International Airport and Norman Manley International Airport are the main airports on the island.

This brings us to the next logical thing that you need to consider… location.

Understandably, you’re going to choose the airport closest to Negril. With that taken into consideration, the most proximate airport to Negril is the Sir Donald Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay.

Sir Donald Sangster International Airport

Largest of the international airports in Jamaica, Sir Donald Sangster International Airport is known as the gateway to Jamaica as it is choice port of entry for most tourist visiting the north and west coast of the island.

The airport offers a wide array of amenities. There are restaurants that offer scrumptious Jamaican cuisines, as well as a convenient shopping area that decorated with jewellery, perfumes, liquor and other amenities.

Since it is the largest airport in Jamaica, you’ll also find that several airlines operate there. These include:

  • AeroGal
  • Aerogaviota
  • Air Berlin
  • Air Canada
  • Air Canada Rouge
  • Air Transat
  • Allegiant Air
  • American Airlines
  • Arkefly
  • Blue Panorama
  • Canjet
  • Caribbean Airlines
  • Cayman Airways
  • Condor
  • Copa Airlines
  • Delta Airlines
  • Eurowings
  • Frontier Airlines
  • Jet Blue
  • Neos
  • Southwest Airlines
  • Spirit Airlines
  • Sun Country
  • Sunwing
  • Thomas Cook
  • TUI
  • United Airlines
  • Virgin Atlantic
  • West Jet
  • Xtra Airways

Once you’ve arrived at the airport and gone through all the usual procedures, it’s now time to be swept off to your destination... Negril.

The most popular way to get to Negril is via shuttle. It usually takes about an 1 hour and 15 minutes to travel from Montego Bay to Negril.

I know that sounds a bit long, but take out your camera, it is as an opportunity to enjoy the scenic Jamaican landscape.

But… you can fly as well!

Remember the domestic airport in Negril I mentioned, Negril Aerodrome? Well, when you arrive in Montego Bay you can take a domestic flight and it’ll land you in Negril in as little as 15 minutes.

Currently, Negril Aerodrome is supported by the following domestic airlines:

  • InterCaribbean Airways
    Phone: 1-800-572-7628

  • International Airlink
    Phone: (876) 940-0195/4870

  • TimAir
    Phone: (876) 952-2516/979-1114

And what about Norman Manley International Airport?

Well, the option is always there for you to use the Norman Manley International Airport heading to Negril.

But similar to Mobay, you’ll have to be shuttled to Negril. However, Kingston is much, much further from Negril. It’s approximately 105 miles from Negril. As a result, it will be substantially longer. Up to 4 hours if you’re being shuttled.

However, just like from Montego Bay, you can also be flown into Negril by one of the domestic airlines.

Be mindful however that air or land, it would be more costly to travel from Kingson to Negril than from Montego Bay to Negril.

So the choice is clear, unless you have a special reason to be in Kingston, then make it Montego Bay baby.

But then again, the choice is truly yours :-)
