More charter flights from Europe.
In recent years, the number of European visitors arriving in Jamaica by charter flights has continued to show a steady increase, reports Caribbean Net News (June 1, 2007). In the three months to the end of March this year, 40% of European visitors arrived via charter flights rather than scheduled airline flights. The Jamaica Tourist Board's March 2007 report indicates that this figure was 42% last year, up from 37% the previous year, and 32% in 2003. In the Jan-March 2007, 74% of visitors from Spain arrived by charter flights, with 82% from Portugal, 84% from Italy, and 100% from Greece.
