Caye Caulker isn't the only spot that will get a fully decked out airstrip. Minister Heredia and his team are working on a plan to renovate the Placencia airstrip as well.

Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr., Minister of Tourism
"We are already in the work plan for Placencia and I am sure that in the next couple of months I am hoping that something will be in the pipeline to see if we can get Placencia going."

Courtney Weatherburne, reporter
"So in Placencia it is going to be a big project such as this one?"

Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr., Minister of Tourism
"Placencia will be more expensive than this one. Placencia, according to..we have not finalized plans as yet but I am sure it will be above $5 million dollars."

Courtney Weatherbrune
"What is the condition right now, more or less?"

Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr., Minister of Tourism
"It is passable but we don't want to leave our airdromes as just minimal standards right."

Heredia says they are negotiating with Heritage Bank to get the funds secured for the Placencia airstrip project.
