Present and future Airport developments
: A new $200M PassengerTerminal was to get 'under way by the end of 2015' - bringing much-needed jobs to the area. However, as many Bermudians (collective owners of the Airport) point out that Bermuda 'can harldly afford a new terminal' and others suggest renovations on current terminal - the final decision is dragging on.... On July 4, 2016, the Government released a live video 'On Borrowed Time' - available that night to all of Bermuda's citizens - making them aware of the critical need to upgrade airport.
Update: At present, the public vote will have to be casted on this issue prior to Feb. 2017, when Parliament resumes.
