MONTEGO BAY AIRPORT UPDATE.
In 2001, YVRAS Consortium, headed by Vancouver Airport Services of Canada was granted selected bidder status by the Government and negotiations began for a 30-year concession to develop, manage and operate the airport. A US$200 million upgrade and expansion of the airport, in two phases, is envisaged; Sangster is the larger of Jamaica's two international airports.
About three million passengers pass through the airport annually and growth is projected at between 3% and 5% percent per annum. There is a severe strain on the availability of aircraft parking positions. Details: E.A. Finlay, USFC Kingston, 2 Oxford Rd., Kingston 5, Jamaica. Tel:(876) 926-8115. Fax: (876) 920-2580.
