By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation and the Belize Airport Authority has announced that the newly-renovated Placencia Municipal Airport will be inaugurated tomorrow, Friday, December 4, 2020.
Following the completion of the rehabilitation project, the airport now has a 2,775 foot by 40-foot runway that has been asphalted with hot mix. The runway also comes with 10-foot wide load-bearing shoulders on each side and is outfitted with thermoplastic markings and a modern lighting system that complies with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.
Other new features include proper drainage, additional security fencing, and a shore protection system to complement the runway.
