The under-construction passenger terminal at the Argyle International Airport in the Caribbean island country of St. Vincent & the Grenadines is proceeding as per the latest schedule and the airport is expected to open in 2014.
The St. Vincent & Grenadines Tourism Authority has stated that the terminal building is currently 87 percent complete.
The new airport will replace the existing E.T. Joshua Airport and handle direct flights to and from the US, Canada and Europe. Construction costs for the new facility are close to $250 million US and have increased since the project’s inception.
Argyle Airport, designed to handle 1.5 million passengers annually, will have over five times the capacity of the current airport. It will also be able to handle large aircraft such as Boeing 747-400s.
