St. Vincent to Complete International Airport by Early 2016

SAN JUAN – The government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines expects to finish construction of Argyle International Airport by early 2016, a spokesperson for the airport development company told EFE on Friday in a phone interview.

Work on the $270 million project began in August 2008.

The official said construction is expected to wrap up in late February or early March after a successful test of the lighting system and runway.

Four planes, one of them carrying Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, landed on the new runway Thursday as part of an event to celebrate progress on the project.

Gonsalves, who kissed the tarmac after stepping off the plane, said the airport will fully comply with the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

Argyle International Airport is located in the country’s capital, Kingstown.
