The Belize Airports Authority wishes to take this opportunity to update the general public that works on the Caye Caulker Municipal Airstrip project are well underway with the rehabilitation and widening of the runway. The works include the installation of a new runway lighting system that will allow for night-time landing capabilities.

The works are expected to be completed in mid-June when the facility will be reopened to air traffic.

On a similar note, as part of the BAA’s Strategic Plan to upgrade the country’s aerodrome network, the general public is informed that the Sir Barry Bowen Municipal Airport will be undergoing scheduled remedial works over a four day period. These works are a normal part of the warranty period standard of BAA contracts. As such flights will be temporarily relocated to the taxiway which is equipped to be used as a temporary runway, while these works are executed. Operations at the airport will be uninterrupted while works last.

The public is thanked for its understanding.
