UPGRADES IMMINENT AT ANR ROBINSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (the Authority) is pleased to advise that rehabilitation works on the terminal building at the ANR Robinson International Airport will soon begin.
Recent meetings with stakeholders in Tobago and the coordinated efforts of the Minister of Transport, the Honourable Chandresh Sharma, Minister of Tourism, the Honourable Stephen Cadiz, and Minister of Tobago Development, the Honourable Delmon Baker have resulted in the engaging of project management, engineering and architectural consultants to undertake work on the airport terminal and facilities in Tobago.
As a matter of high priority, refurbishment works will commence on the facilities at the international departure and arrivals areas and the check-in concourse. The repair of the roof of the main terminal building and the construction of a VIP Lounge will also be done in the short term, with the long term goal of constructing a world class international wing.
Chairman of Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago, Gerald Hadeed has reiterated his commitment to addressing the concerns at the airport. He stated, “The Board has resolved to rectify longstanding issues at the ANR Robinson International Airport with immediate effect. We hope to make the airport into a state of the art facility of which Tobagonians and Trinidadians can feel proud”.
Already, the runway rehabilitation project in Tobago is complete and the hours of operation have been extended to accommodate more domestic flights.
The Authority will continue to keep the general public updated on plans, initiatives and developments at the airport as we continue to make our airport facilities more comfortable, safe and secure for all customers, travellers, concessionaires and airport users.
