The Boscobel Aerodrome in St. Mary is be renamed the Ian Fleming International Airport in honour of the late James Bond author.
Minister with responsibility for Information, Telecommunications and Special Projects, Hon. Daryl Vaz, on (November 17) told post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House that Cabinet has approved the recommendation for the name change. He said that the use of the late author’s name has been approved by the Fleming family.
The late Ian Fleming lived at ‘Goldeneye’ in Oracabessa, St. Mary and there, wrote all 14 of his novels, on which the famous ‘James Bond’ series of movies are based.
“The Airports Authority of Jamaica is of the view that the new name will significantly enhance the marketing of the airport and the area to the international aviation community and, therefore should prove to be a ‘value-added’ asset,” Mr. Vaz said.
