The government of Guyana has announced the approval of a $138 million agreement with the state-owned China Harbour Engineering Company for the design and construction of an expansion at Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
The project, which was first announced a few months ago, will include the extension of the airport’s runway to a total of 10,800 to accommodate larger aircraft like the Boeing 747, along with a new terminal building and eight boarding bridges.
The deal also includes updated equipment like three-dimensional x-ray scanners and new security monitoring systems.
China Harbour was established in 2005 after a merger between China Harbour Engineering Group and China Road and Bridge Corporation.
