Twenty-seven Jamaicans who have been stranded in Britain will return home later today (April 21).
This as permission has been granted for them to land, despite the closure of Jamaica’s borders to incoming flights from the United Kingdom.
The incoming Boeing 777 aircraft will then repatriate British nationals and residents to the UK, tomorrow (April 22).
The Ministry of National Security says due to Covid-19 restrictions, families of arriving passengers are asked not to meet at the airport, as the individuals will be housed in a government managed quarantine facility for 14 days.
Meantime, Minister of Foreign Affairs Senator Kamina Johnson Smith says several other persons are registered to return to the island.
