Bond movie puts Jamaica back in the limelight

The latest James Bond movie just had the best opening weekend in the UK of any 007 movie, showcasing Jamaica to a huge audience.

The Jamaica Tourist Board celebrated the release of the film, No Time To Die, recently by hosting a special preview screening for VIP guests, tour operator, airline and other industry partners.

The film includes a number of scenes shot in Jamaica.

It included partners from Virgin Atlantic, Flight Connection, TUI, Scott Dunn and Caribtours, alongside representatives from Jamaica properties including Round Hill Hotel and Villas, Geejam Hotel, Frenchman's Cove and the iconic GoldenEye Resort.

Jamaica is the birthplace of 007, where Ian Fleming created and wrote the Bond novels. The island also features in the first James Bond film, Dr. No (1962), as well as in Live And Let Die (1973). Jamaica is also a key location in No Time To Die.

Elizabeth Fox, Regional Director UK/Northern Europe for the Jamaica Tourist Board, said: "We were delighted to host a number of VIP guests and industry partners which puts a spotlight on Jamaica as such a vibrant location. We know the huge impact of cinema, particularly Bond, on travel so we're sure the film is going to motivate many to book holidays here for years to come."
