Work is underway on the project to expand the arrival terminal at St Kitts’ Robert L Bradshaw International Airport.

The project will mean an additional 1,600 square feet of space and the capacity for another 200 passengers and four immigration officers, according to Christopher Bass, Chief Executive Officer of the St Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority.

The project is slated for completion in late October or early November, just before peak tourism season begins, Bass said.

The expansion is part of a wider phased series of improvements to the country’s international airport, according to the government.

Another project, the private Fixed Base Operation, is also underway, Bass said.

“This private terminal will cater to commercial and private travelers who are prepared to pay extra for personalized fast-tracking and concierge type services,” he said.
