    PART I - GENERAL INFORMATION AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF JAMAICA The Airports Authority of Jamaica (AAJ) was established in 1974, under the Airports Authority Act (the Act) as a statutory body to manage and operate the Norman Manley International, Sangster International Airport and Ian Fleming International Airport. In 1990, the AAJ was also given the additional operational responsibility for the three domestic aerodromes (Tinson Pen in Kingston, Ken Jones in Portland, Negril in Westmoreland) which were designated as prescribed airports under the Act. The AAJ is guided by its Vision and Mission as stated hereunder:


    To build and sustain a world-class airport system, which facilitates private investment and partnership and positions Jamaicas airports as

    the gateway to the Caribbean and the Americas


    To develop a modern, safe and profitable airport system that is environmentally responsible, provides world-class service, and

    contributes substantially to the national economy while promoting the expansion of air transportation and its related industries

    NORMAN MANLEY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT The Norman Manley International Airport (Airport) is strategically located along the North and South trade routes providing easy access to various international markets. Its location is further enhanced by the close proximity to the nations heartbeat (the capital city, Kingston) and also serves Jamaicas tourism belt of the South and East coasts. The Airport caters to a divergent group of travellers, namely foreign nationals as well as non-resident and resident Jamaicans. Given its proximity to one of the Caribbean's leading commercial and industrial centres, the Airport is of significant importance to the business community and is the primary airport for business travel to and from Jamaica. The arriving passenger mix is approximately 65% local and foreign resident Jamaicans, with tourists (mainly international business visitors currently) comprising the remaining volume.

    The AAJs art philosophy is to provide innovative and entertaining, where possible, art concepts to all Airport users (primarily passengers and employees). The art work is intended to complement the architectural design and nationally themed elements, aimed at enhancing the image of the Airport as a world-class gateway. It is anticipated that memorable and stimulating Airport experiences will be created for passengers and other users through the execution of the art programme, which will augment passenger facilitation requirements and enable the achievement of customer service expectations. It is of primary importance that the art work is executed to ensure a low clutter environment and to provide synergy with other existing Airport services. Hence art work and messages must not obstruct, overpower, divert attention from or otherwise interfere with Airport directional signage and operation.
