New Airport Being Developed in the British Virgin Islands

BVI Premier Hon. Ralph T. O'Neal said that the renovated Virgin Gorda airport will have the capacity to accomodate 19 seater planes. The project of the complete purchase and development of the airport started in 2002; now, by words of Premier, the new airport will replace a narrow 1960-era airstrip built by administrators of the high-end Little Dix Bay resort. The facility was sold to the government in the late 1990s.

British-based Halcrow Group Ltd. has signed a contract to upgrade the Virgin Gorda site over the next year. Earlier, the company developed airstrips in Montserrat and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
