Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA)
Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) is the second largest airport in Jamaica, located approximately 13 miles from the Kingston City Centre. It has a 2,716 metres long runway, capable of handling B747 and B777 aircraft. The development of the NMIA is a key part of the Government of Jamaica’s (GoJ’s) broader strategic development plans to establish Kingston as a regional business hub and Jamaica as a logistics hub.
The Government of Jamaica, through the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, has initiated the process of implementing a PPP to identify a private sector operator with proven experience in the aviation sector to operate, develop and maintain NMIA under a long-term concession. NMIAL is owned by the Airports Authority of Jamaica and operated by NMIA Airport Ltd.
The Government of Jamaica announced Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico S.A.B. De C.V. (GAP) on September 11th as the provisional Preferred Bidder for the NMIA Concession. The Concession Agreement was signed on October 10, 2018. Financial Close is expected in the 3rd Quarter FY 2019/20.
