Travellers should brace for delays

Capital works commence at LPIA

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Travellers should brace for delays at Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) as capital works to revamp the runway began in earnest today and is expected to take another four months to complete, according to the Nassau Airport Development (NAD) company.

NAD, the company that manages operations of the LPIA, has partnered with Bahamas Hot Mix to complete the $20 million project.

The project will require upgrades to the asphalt paving, which is expected to renew and extend the life on the runway, as well as reduce the risk of damage to aircraft that overrun the runways.

New LED approach lights are also expected to be installed to assist pilots in low visibility operations.

According to officials, the project is expected to be completed before the Thanksgiving travel period, which brings scores of visitors to the shores of The Bahamas.  Read more >>
