$240m for GAIA
GOVERNMENT plans to spend in excess of $240 million to give the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) a major facelift.
While cost estimates have not been finalised, Minister of Tourism and International Transport Richard Sealy said the project would create jobs when it begins in the second quarter of 2017.
He made the announcement on Saturday night during a press event to celebrate the arrival of German leisure airliner Condor’s inaugural flight from Munich, Germany’s third largest city, to Barbados. The new flight is in addition to Condor’s twice-a-week flight out of another German city, Frankfurt.
Sealy said there were plans to continue to develop the market in Europe’s economic powerhouse. (TG)
