Present and future Airport developments: In Jan. 2017 it was announced that the application for Airport Privatization could pave the way for Oaktree Capital to become the new Airport operator. This is to allow for Airport redesign and improved passenger terminal amenities & services. Currently the Airport handles 1.5M passengers annually (down from 2M in 2010). If FAA & County legislators will approve the deal, it could be closed by summer 2017. By late Feb. 2017 it was announced that the expected completion of the Masterplan (due yearend 2016) was postponed to April 2017. Debates whether to grant Oaktree capital the right to take over or find a financial solution to continue operating the Airport by levying a 3% additional tax are still ongoing....
