BARBADOS IS GOING to split its Civil Aviation Department in two under a plan aimed at giving locally registered aircraft the right to operate commercially in the United States.
The idea is to have the status of Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) upgraded from Category 2 to Category 1.
Minister of Tourism and International Transport Richard Sealy made the disclosure yesterday during a groundbreaking ceremony at Charnocks, Christ Church, for a new $10.9 million headquarters for the Civil Aviation Department.
There will be “a comprehensive restructuring” of the department to create two entities – a regulatory body called the Barbados Civil Aviation Authority and an “operational” agency, Sealy explained.
