Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett has said Jamaica is exploring additional air connectivity options out of Europe, in light of the UK leaving the European Union (EU).
Mr. Bartlett made the announcement following a meeting on Wednesday with several key representatives of Germany, Spain, France and Belgium.
Mr. Bartlett, while stressing that the discussions are timely, said the UK's departure from the EU will impact not just Jamaica but the region.
High on the list of topics discussed was the need for market analysis, including stopovers from low cost European airlines and main markets for European visitors to Jamaica, to inform the possibility of an EU Air Services Agreement.
Jamaica welcomes just over 300,000 European visitors annually.
