Airspace activity should be fully restored at this time.Opposition Spokesman Mikael Phillips had urged JCAA to investigate and provide a detailed explanation for the closure of Jamaica’s airspace closure.

The minister is working to provide a detailed report as soon as information comes to knowledge.

 

UPDATE ON THE NEW SYSTEM

JCAA chairman Phillip Henriques explained that the new air traffic control system was about to change over. He pointed out that the new system was just back up while the old system is being restored.

Henriques says JCAA is relying on a technical team to provide limited air traffic services as he apologized for the partial closure of the airspace. He says that all air traffic controllers should be fully trained to operate the new system by early October.
