The Bahamas is planning a wave of new airport projects in the Out Islands.

That includes design plans for North Eleuthera Airport, along with technical works for the selection of new airport sites for South Eleuthera and Long Island.

The Bahamian government is also finalizing design plans for terminals and runway works for Moores Island, Great Harbour Cay and Mayaguana.

The country also has announced plans for a modernization of aviation agencies, which will include the creation of a Family Island Division of the Airport Authority.

The government said it would be additionally signing a technical support arrangement with VAG for the management of the Leonard M Thompson airport in Marsh Harbour.

VAG currently manages LPIA; the government said the terms of the Marsh Harbour arrangement were “now being finalized.”
