PLANS REVIVED FOR PRIVATIZATION OF AIRPORT.

The Government has reactivated a plan for the privatization of the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, says Transport Minister Peter Phillips, reports The Jamaica Observer (June 29, 1998). Minister Phillips said the Cabinet had approved the privatization plan but that the successful bidder would have to agree to fund a new US$100 million terminal building at the facility. The prequalification deadline was July 15, 1998. The Montego Bay airport is the main gateway for the more than one million tourists to Jamaica annually. Air Jamaica also uses it as a Caribbean regional hub.
