Still work to do on aviation body

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.
