Sangster International Airport is found in Montego Bay in the north west corner of the island of Jamaica. The airport is one of the most modern and largest airports in the Caribbean, and can handle around 9 million passengers each year. It is usually the main tourist entry point into Jamaica, and is reasonably close to the main resort areas along the north coast such as Negril, Ocho Rios and Sandy Bay.
Montego Bay Airport is at the heart of some of the most popular resort towns in Jamaica, and it is a really good idea to consider renting a car during your stay on the island. In many cases, if you are travelling with the whole family, airport to hotel transfers can be quite expensive, and will require a lot of waiting around. If you have a car, you can just head off at your own pace, and the cost for a week?s rental will often be cheaper than the cost of transfers. The roads are easy to navigate, and most of the main hotels are sign posted from the coastal highway around the north of the island.
All of the 6 car hire companies at Montego Bay Sangster International Airport are located in the ground floor arrivals area of the airport Terminal building just past the customs posts. You can get car hire with Hertz, Island Car Rental, Budget , Sunbird, Avis Car Hire, and Champagne Car Rental, who all have desks at the airport.
The main road that runs along the north coast of Jamaica is the A2, which connects most of the resort towns. From Falmouth, Boston Bay, and Rio Bueno, you would head west along the coastal road, whereas from Sandy Bay and Montego Bay itself you would head east. If you are travelling across the island from Kingston, then you would need to take the A1 north across the island to Ocho Rios, before heading west along the A2 as far as the airport.
