Government is still some way from establishing a Civil Aviation Authority although much groundwork has been done. During a service at the St Martin’s Anglican Church, St Philip yesterday in commemoration of Civil Aviation Week, Minister of International Transport George Hutson said a specialist aviation regulator would bring into focus the important role aviation plays in Barbados’ development and encourage greater air traffic. “It is the intention of Government to encourage more aircraft to use our facilities so to this end my ministry is pursuing the establishment of a Civil Aviation Authority which we believe will further enhance the work of the Civil Aviation Department,” he said. Hutson said Government had negotiated several regional and international air service agreements and had completed an airport master plan.
