The Jamaican Ministry of Tourism and the Jamaica Tourist Board made the announcement earlier this week that the island nation had already received one million tourists in 2022.
Due to this figure, the island is now in the running for the title of one of the most visited sites in the Caribbean in 2018.
During the flight 1479 that JetBlue operated from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City to Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, passenger Brian Simmons became the one millionth guest to arrive at Sangster International Airport. Simmons is entitled to a round-trip ticket that is fully covered by the company.
