Cargo suspension lifted for Canada & the Bahamas

No Comments

The temporary suspension placed on cargo operations from Jamaica to Canada and the Bahamas has been lifted.

The Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA) says the lifting of the suspension means that cargo and duty free items will now be allowed to leave Jamaica for these two countries.

However, the ban on cargo from Jamaica to the United States remains in effect until further notice.

The United States Transport Security Administration (TSA) imposed the ban Sunday night after it received a threat that an explosive device could be placed on a flight from Jamaica.

The ban was expanded to include the transportation of cargo to Canada and the Bahamas as these flights utilize US airspace.
