The time has come to reform Barbados’ civil aviation sector, says Minister of Energy and Business Development Kerrie Symmonds.

Piloting debate on the Civil Aviation Bill 2022 in the House of Assembly on Tuesday, he pointed particularly to the Grantley Adams International Airport.

The bill before the House proposed separation of the roles of service providers and regulators at the airport, as Symmonds explained this was necessary in order for the airport to achieve true international status.

He also said the time had come for the airport to maximise the commercial potential of the aerodrome, making accommodation for shopping activity that would provide business opportunities for more small vendors and craftspeople. (Nation News)
