Antigua and Barbuda says it is planning to open the new terminal building at VC Bird Airport in September 2014.
The new, modern terminal will cover a total of almost 250,000 square feet of space, with four jet bridges, four escalators, four elevators, 12 x-ray machines and complete monitoring by CCTV.
It will feature 46 “common user terminal equipment” check-in stations, along with 15 self-service check-in kiosks, according to the Antigua and Barbuda Airport Authority.
The ground floor of the airport will have a mini-food court and light shopping.
The airport will also have full climate control, the authority said.
