    Default Fire at Sangster (MBJ) Airport

    I heard that the airport in Montego Bay caught on fire. I was wondering if anyone has heard if flights are still going or being diverted?

    Judging by their arrival/departed website, all flights are ok.

    Read in the Jamaica Observer this morning that everything was back to normal--flights arriving and taking off.

    Not the main terminal. No injuries. 15 minute interruption to flights, no cancellations. All flights and terminal operations are functioning normally and on time. This was an adjacent building, not the main terminal. Rest easy, this will not effect your vacation either arriving or departing.
    Have a great trip!

    Looked around on the net, found some info that didn't look too bad but confirmed that they did have a fire:
