Montego Bay Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Arrived at 3.30pm on Saturday. This is the busy time of the day so the wait for passport control was nearly 1.5 hours. Once through all okay. I suggest that if you have a choice try to book a flight that comes in after about 5.00pm.

Montego Bay Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Disgraceful lines at immigration. Took over 2 hours to get through. Then greeted by unwelcoming and suspicious immigration officers. Then a shambles at the luggage carousel. All bags had been removed and piled in a corner. Then to cap it all a long line at "nothing to declare" with very unfriendly customs officers. The whole dreadful experience took over 3 hours from touchdown after a 10 hour transatlantic flight. Avoid this airport at all costs.

Montego Bay Airport customer review

(United States)

Upon arrival you are directed to immigration where lines were painfully long (40mins) even though 20+ podiums were open. Once we cleared that you go to pick up your bags were it was another mess and the screens showing which carousel your bags should be on was incorrect. We were then directed by one of the staff to the correct carousel; at this point you have to search for your bags on the floor as they were all taken of the carousel. From this point on it was fairly fast as customs was a breeze. All in all airport is nice clean and has lots of shopping options. Just be prepared for the lines.

Montego Bay Airport customer review

Arrival was very good with no queues at immigration. Luggage arrived quickly. Customs no problem. Good experience. Outside the terminal can be a bit intimidating especially if you do not know where you are going. Departure quite slow. Lots of security post Xmas Day incident. Bags searched at least twice. Boarding the Virgin Flight reminded me of my rugby days. Facilities airside OK good nachos and Red Strip on tap so was quite happy! Could see some issues if there are several arrivals at the same time but its Montego Bay so stay cool.

Expansion continues immigration on entry can be a pain. Make sure you are given a proper card on your flight. And fill it in before you leave the plane. You will be taken out of queue by an officer and sent over to a desk to do so. Even when you then have completed it he may hold you back as he lets other passengers through. Customs most times is poor - most people are in the 'nothing to declare' line - with most times only 2 officers on duty. Trying to go through "To declare' line to get around it does not work. Jamaican staff can be very inflexible. Rum prices are about the same as any tourist would pay at/near his hotel.

The airport has been expanded since my last trip to Jamaica. The older part has also been remodeled. Immigration was very easy with no line of any kind. There also was no line at customs. Was off the plane and out of the airport in about 20 min. They have added many new stores for those who like to shop when departing. The airport is neat and clean. Much improved from what it was in the past.

Montego Bay Airport customer review

The main part of the airport building is rather new. The building is clean. The big problem is immigration on arrival. The line was very long and slow moving. Expect some wait if several planes arrive at the same time. Customs was quick. Lots of places to shop when you depart with prices that are not too far out of line for an airport (but few bargains). It was a hard place to exchange money when departing due to the location of the exchange booth. Food options were fine if a bit limited. The airport is much improved over my last time to Jamaica but it still needs some improvement.

Montego Bay Airport customer review

Arriving from London and going through immigration was horrendous. it took me one and a half hours to get through immigration on 24th Jan 2009. It took my husband who came a week later on Jan 31st 2009 two hours and fifteen minutes to get through immigration. After a long 10 hour flight from London already exhausted this is unacceptable.

Montego Bay Airport customer review

What a refreshing change an airport run by smiling friendly people even the customs officer welcomed us a small often overlooked aspect at many of the airports we have flown from. The airport the shops and toilet areas were spotless The retail outlets were not at all overpriced like most airports. All in all a very pleasant experience to the start and end of our holiday!!
