Wednesday Morning Airport Arrival...

We will be arriving on a Wednesday morning, and was wondering if this is typically a busy time, or does it vary? I know it depends on how many flights will be coming in around the same time, but do not know how to find that out! Thanks!

Normally Wed arrival is good, we have arrived on a Wed before and breezed thru customs, from the time we exited the plane, thru customs, grabbed our bags and met our transfer it was about 20 min total. Like you said, depends on how many planes come in and time of arrival, as long as you aren't in the back of the plane, you should get thru pretty quick.

You could have a look at this website for actual arrival stats:

The planned arrivals for about a 36 hours ahead:

the airport code is MBJ and select planned

still looking for a more comprehensive online database which can detail any day's arrival for any airport.

You should be in pretty good shape. We were told several years ago that Tuesday and Wednesday tend to be the quietest (at least in March when we go) and we have found that to be true in the years since. Our flight usually gets in shortly after 10AM and it's a quick trip through to the Sandals desk and a cold Red Stripe.

Weekday mornings do tend to be less busy than weekends. It's pretty variable though.... no worries either way. The time from touchdown to existing customs for us has typically ranged from 20-60 min.

If you're hungry when you land, grab a couple of patties & a beverage at the food stand just outside the airport doors. Great mini-lunch to snack on during the ride to Negril.
