Expansion Work On Ian Fleming Airport To Commence Today

Work to expand the Ian Fleming International Airport in Boscobel, St. Mary is scheduled to commence today (march 12).

The expansion effort is being carried out in a bid to make the airport a regional hub.

National Security Minister, Hon. Robert Montague made the revelation last week at the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of a new police station by the National Housing Trust (NHT) in Port Maria.

He is quoted by JIS as saying:

“We already have two applications (from) airlines wanting to be based at Boscobel,” the Minister said.

“We have to expand the terminal building and we have to widen the runway. Phase two includes lengthening the runway, and we will be going across the highway with a box culvert, so the planes will taxi across the highway.”

The airport  is named for Ian Fleming – the creator of the James Bond novels, whose Goldeneye estate is also located in St Mary.
