Municipal airstripBy Aaron Humes: The Belize City Municipal Airstrip has long acted as “little brother” to the Philip Goldson International Airport in Ladyville, serving as a key transport hub for tourists and Belizeans flying into and out of the Old Capital to other destinations.

The Government broke ground for renovations of the airstrip, which hugs the shoreline in the Kings Park area, in December of 2012. More than three years later, Minister for Civil Aviation Manuel Heredia Jr. says works are close to an end.

The Minister yesterday boasted of the new features that will make the Airstrip the closest thing to the PGIA as well as plans for other airstrips around the country: a redone landing strip and apron, full fence and expanded parking lot. Other airstrips will also be fenced in.

Funding for the project was provided in part by the Social Security Board with a loan agreement signed with the Belize Airport Authority. Works are expected to be complete by the end of March, mid-April at the latest.
