St. John's International Airport Experiencing 'Unprecedented Growth'

The St. John's International Airport Authority is investing nearly $150 million into infrastructure over the next decade. The plan will focus on resolving many of the operational constraints that have emerged over the past ten years. Some highlights of the plan include an expansion of the terminal building, a new airport access road and upgrades to the airfield. Wednesday morning, the authority released its ten year vision for improvements.

Fraser Edison, Chair of the Board of Directors, says they have seen unprecedented growth in passenger traffic and aircraft movements in recent years. Looking ahead to 2011, Edison says they expect to handle 1.8 million passengers. He says that forecast warrants the expansion of their facilities.
