Jamaican Airport Named After Ian Fleming

Ian FlemingAuthor Ian Fleming will be honored with his very own airport. Jamaica is set to name its third international airport after the novelist who created James Bond.

Here’s more from Air & Business Travel News: “Previously known as the Boscobel Airstrip, the upgraded and expanded Ian Fleming airport will mainly be used by travellers flying in on private jets. The official opening of the airport, which now features a passenger lounge, pilot briefing room and customs and immigration points, is due this month.”

Andrew Lycett‘s biography, Ian Fleming: The Man Behind James Bond, revealed that Fleming named his character after ornithologist James Bond. The real-life Bond allowed Fleming to use his Jamaica estate for writing. Fleming  later bought his own Jamaican estate which he named “Goldeneye.”
