The Tourism Ministry says it is on track to meeting the projections of 4 million visitors to the island by year end.
Senior Advisor and Strategist in the Ministry of Tourism, Delano Seiveright says the country will also meet its target of foreign exchange earnings of US $4.1-billion by year end.
He says this will happen if the current trajectory in visitor arrivals continues.
Preliminary figures for the year already indicate that some 2.5 million stopover visitors have arrived on the island.
This is an 18% increase over the similar period in 2022 and a 10% increase over the similar period in 2019.
Mr. Seiveright says he expects that this will continue with Jamaica readying for several new and inaugural nonstop flights in December, on top of several other new nonstop flights launched in recent weeks.
Among the new flights are nonstop trips between London, the UK and Montego Bay by European Airline, Norse Atlantic Airways.
