We need an air­port ho­tel

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION&COMMENTARY -

THE ED­I­TOR, Sir: WITH THE in­creased and wel­come road in­fra­struc­ture work that is on­go­ing within the Cor­po­rate Area, I now be­lieve that there is a strong need for a ho­tel to be built on the grounds of the Nor­man Man­ley In­ter­na­tional Air­port to cater to the short-stay trav­eller com­ing to Ja­maica. The ideal spot would be the site of the car park­ing area.

This is a well-needed ven­ture and won’t un­der­mine the ex­ist­ing ho­tels in the Cor­po­rate Area, such as the Pe­ga­sus and the Courtleigh. Min­is­ter Shaw, can the con­struc­tion be partly funded by the trav­eller’s de­par­ture tax, SCT and prop­erty tax gains?
