Glen Beache, CEO of St. Vincent and The Grenadines Tourism Authority,said that the oft-delayed Argyle International Airport project, which would represent the destination’s sixth airport and first international airport, is expected to be completed no later than March this year .
Beache said that the airport is considered a “game-changer” for the island since it will now be able to accommodate the larger commercial planes that existing St. Vincent and The Grenadines airports could not. Whereas the destination is accustomed to accommodating about 50 tourists per plane, the new airport will allow for planes of up to 150-200 passengers.
The International Airport Development Company, (IADC) is now recruiting suitably qualified persons to operate and manage the Argyle International Airport,Public Relations Officer at the IADC, Jennifer Richardson says the Company has published a total of 51 positions.
Miss Richardson is urging interested persons to send their applications early for the various posts available at the International Airport.
Meanwhile Beache told Travel Agent a Canadian developer is looking to break ground on three new hotels on St. Vincent and The Grenadines. According to Beache, there will be a three-star hotel, a four-star hotel and a “six-star” property all on the same grounds. Each hotel will be 200 rooms each, he says.
