New Antigua airport opens with US$98-million price tag

antigua airport

A shiny new VC Bird International Airport terminal opened on Thursday amidst much pomp and ceremony, and apparently with a price tag to match.

When the project was announced in 2011, the initial cost was US $45 million. That sum was increased to US $75 million by May 2013, and during the terminal’s opening ceremony on Thursday, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism Paula Frederick Hunte quoted the final cost at nearly US $98 million.

Despite the cost, however, tourism stakeholders expressed high hopes for the new facility.

“This facility, at a cost of approximately US $98 million, is one we can all be proud of, and I am confident will help ensure the bright and successful future of Antigua & Barbuda,” she said.

    I’m a Dominican who works at the Antigua Airport and although i’m happy for Antigua, I wished that we had an International Airport in Dominica, ONE OF THAT SORT. We have been lagging behind too much. The world wants to come and enjoy Dominica, invest and to study and if we take the human factor out of infrastructural development, we would not reach that level of development we longed for however i’m quite confident that the Geothermal plant will generate much income in Dominica that we could attract much business and that we will be on a better standing to pay for an international Airport.
    May AHAYAH ASHER AHAYAH BLESS DOMINICA.

    I take one look at that airport and thought skerrit is de worse prime minister we ever had in Dominica.

      Traveling back and forth from the UK to D/A , I have to say, how can I put it . What a crap airport we have in D/A. Where is the duty free shops, the choice of refreshment establishments . Why does the airport only have one floor. The colour is the only thing it has going for it.. If this Skerrit wants to change peoples views of his party and their behaviour, or the nations perception of it. Dominica is not going forward . Every time I return to D/A I feel more and more disappointed. If you are going to take your kickbacks then make it work for the people and the island . More investment more finished product more really marketing of Dominica and stop selling Dominica off to the highest bidder,for passports. Soon they will be selling whaling rights to the Japanese. WHAT IS NEXT DEFORESTATION.

    It bothers me the comments here by people who do not care to make a quick check before commenting. The terminal was built by the last government, not the ALP. They only get to open it. So to criticize Skerrit for not doing something which people claim the ALP did is to speak without information. Secondly, it’s a new terminal, not a new airport.

    the airport is a master piece to be proud of. I look forward to the day when I can arrive in Dominica and see a much up to date terminal than we have now. I have not been back in five years and from what I have been told we have not moved an inch since then . repainting and planting a few trees and flowers does not do much of an upgrade. the price tag is not the problem cause every airport pays for itself.

    Well that saves us building one. All we have to do now is have a ferry service to Antigua and to Barbados and that way improve international access to Dominica.

    mr primeminister,i am not here to criticized you,you are already the primeminister and there is nothing anybody can do about ,the majority of Dominicans have chosen you and your cabinet ministers to run the affairs of the country,so my address to you is,do not bow to any pressures from people who think they can do the job better than you,i do not support that behavour,the best players are the one on the sidelines screaming at the players,if you intend to build an international airport,do not build know giant shed and call it a international airport,make us proud go right to the top,with the help of china build an airport like tampa international in florida,that’s my contribution,no time to criticize it does not make any sense,it’s time for encouragement,work sir

    It’s difficult to understand how we think sometimes. Everyone laments the fact that we should not take on anymore debt, however we owe 1.3 billion dollars in debt. I would like to see a cost benefit analysis of this debt.

    We owe so much, yet still our hospital sucks and the airport, well I need not go there.

    I suppose Skerrit will now write a letter of solidarity with the Antiguan’s, on the opening of this new International Terminal which by my observation looks better than some I’ve been into in some very developed countries. That is a master peace: when people are ambitious, even government all things are possible!

    In order to improve on a country’s infrastructure, cost should not be an obstacle, to the Dominica, government the motto is “we doh want it,” or “it too expensive.” Skerrit claimed that he gave twenty million dollars to the Antiguan’s because Antigua is in worst shape finically, however, a picture is worth more than all the words spoken about a thing.

    The picture we see proves once again that our country is simply a backward place, and shall become more backward as long as Skerrit, and his supporters, and circus clowns are in control of the country! Funny almost all of them who said it was too expensive, and “we doh want it, When Edison James and the UWP…

        So blame those who did not want the international airport because it would cost too much as if their money would have paid for it. That is the problem with some people. They contribute nothing or practically nothing to their country’s economy but they are loud-mouthed about the cost. These are the ones to be blamed. Actually, no one should pay heed to them and their views except to refute them.

        Would this be a few children in every port bragger? :lol: :lol: :lol: Tell us about your Antigua-born children. Tell us about their profile. i.e., how well they have done/are doing that they are proud of where they were born and what do they contribute to it.

        As for you Facts (doh) worry about my Antigua born children; just incase you wish to know “we doh want it” is not in their vocabulary. They are all aggressive, and productive.

        Sink or float if they want something they go after that thing; I taught them the value, of an education, as matter of fact, money was not the cause of me bring them here, a good education is the cause, I taught them how to work also, they all have their business, form insurance agency, to trucking business, and in the field of medicine; to my youngest daughter operating a business on the Strip in Vagas. If I die today, I do not have to worry about them.

      “masterpiece”

      Cease comparing Antigua to Dominica and vice versa. You are aware of the number of tourists Antigua gets daily and the number of planes which land in Antigua. All financially contribute to a big chunk of Antigua’s economy, probably more so than its employed and business owners taxpayers.
      You have noted the proposed cost and the increased cost at its completion. It is enough to eliminate poverty in their country.
      Cease bringing back the past “of words” stated which should be laid to rest.
      Cease also bringing down your country. Antigua has been way ahead of Dominica since bygone years.
      You consistently live in the past. It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good. Anyway some of it is misconstrued and exaggerated.
      When will you live in the present and try to foresee the future of Dominica confidently?

    Why dominicans like to cry about things they can’t afford. No one wants to pay taxes in Dominica. Everything comes at a cost. We owe every bank in the world money. How do we propose in paying back a loan to build an international airport. $98 million usd. Shit we would end up like Greece

      “Why dominicans like to cry about things they can’t afford.”

      Here we go again, you see the crap, that is the Dominica mentality at it best. Every island people can afford what it takes to develop their country,Dominica as the fool said in the quote “they can’t afford it. If we wait until we can afford everything we will never accomplish anything.

      I.E. I came here in 1980 with less than a thousand dollars in my pocket, by 2004 I bought my first property, costing $68, 500.000 dollars, my down payment was five thousand dollars, by the time I was finished paying the mortgage, it coat me more than $300,000.00 dollars that includes principal and interest.

      Nevertheless the life style that I enjoy right now is because of that property, I have millions of dollars invested in Real Estate, all due to that first investment of five thousand dollars. By the same token I know people from Marigot who gave up their mortgage saying they tired pay, but they are renting this day with…

        August 22, 2015

        They are renting this day with nothing to their name! One have to spend money to make money! In reality I paid $232,000 dollars more than the property worth at the time, nevertheless, in 2008 just the collapse of the housing industry.

        I was offered six hundred seventy thousand dollars for that same property, so how much did it appreciate. Math do not lie $670,000.00 – 68,000.00 =$601,500.00 dollars okay Dominica will forever be poor and stagnant because everything involving money is too expensive, at lease that is the philosophy of the Labor Party.

        Our nation under the Labor Party is destine to be the poorest nation on earth! If I decided to take that five thousand dollars, and party, by cloths, and fly to Dominica, I would be the same as some waste of time Dominican in this country.

      There must be a reason why your comments does not get posted. One of the reasons might be you do not know how to write. You wrote every time in lower case letters: i.e. you should have written it like this “Yes I see every time.” But no you wrote “yes i see everytime.”

      You need to realize you are not the only person whose comments does not get posted. If DNO posted everything I wrote on their site, there would be no space for anyone else.

      It is very sad that you express happiness about the attack on DNO by the hackers, and the elements of evil who are hampering the people business. I the personal at DNO was evil like you and those who attempted to menace their business, the would have blocked you from their site.

      I do not wish to be the police of this blog, nevertheless, it irritates me to read such nonsense. In case you do not know, Dominica had the same opportunity as all of the islands you mentioned. The problem is us. Our people who are contented to be poor, and live in backwardness.

      There was a large British presence in Barbados, Trinidad, and Jamaica. They invested on those islands, the British only involvement in Antigua, was the manufacturing of Sugar, the same apply to St. Kitts. We had L. Rose and company, and a few other British land owners and investors in Dominica, our people chase them out, claiming that the land in Dominica belongs to the “Dominican people”.

      We had the same opportunity to get a free left over International Airport the same as Antigua, St. Lucia, Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad left by the British & Americans after World War II

    Beautiful airport and architecture. However, we must be mindful of the things that we ask for. This airport was initially budgeted at $45 Mio and 4 years later we are getting a completed structure with a price tag of close to 100 pcnt exceeding budget. What’s the reason for the overruns? Something just doesn’t look right to me. I’m certain if this were to happen in DA, we would immediately call for the head of the PM.

    • Francisco Telemaque
      August 22, 2015

      There is nothing strange about that, the same happened in Trinidad, they estimated a certain amount of money, however, it ran about three hundred million dollars more.

      An estimate is simply an estimated amount, it could cost more as well as it could cost less; that’s not a mystery, or indication that something cynical occurred.

      Price of material goes up everyday, so assuming the project took five years, the cost of material could have increased by one (100%) plus. That is why when an estimate is made there must always be a cushion that is an extra amount added to take care of the unexpected expenses.

      The fact is its a done deal, Antigua is fast developing that terminal will eventually par for itself. Antiguan’s usually do what is in the interest of their people and country. “We doh want it” is not in their vocabulary!

      That’s from the vision of Baldwin Spencer, Gaston Brown came after all the arrangements were made, and he did not shut it down as Rosie Douglas, Ian Douglas, Athie Martin Roosevelt Skerrit, Reginald Austrie, Pierre Charles, and others did when they came into power, and found Edison James, and the UWP had a International Airport in the commenced stage.

      Mind you the New Airport was costing less than four hundred million dollars, Ian Douglas said that the Labor party could get one built for a fraction of what James was spending, bit in twenty years of their reign, fifteen plus years under Skerrit, and five under their coalition they have yet to deliver.

      What have they done with the money secured by James. Some is spent on the pink and green Elephant called Charles-Douglas. The remainder is in the pockets of some of them. Under the Labor Party, Dominica is anchored nothing can shake our backwardness!

      Yes that’s very true. It reminds me of the CDI (Charles Douglas Int.).
      I pray one day, DA will no longer be the TALON of the Caribbean.

    You call that government and leadership with a vision. Compare that to the leadership of the gang leading Dominica.
    ABSOLUTELY NO COMPARISM!!

      “Comparison” please “comparison”. We may be poor but no need to hang our lack of literacy on the line.

    Now this is something that I would cry to see in Dominica. While I know that everything goes hand in hand, IE, if we construct an international airport we must have a supportive hospital, fire station and emergency facility in place, I would love to see this Island move to another level and we can only do this by taking chances. Look at our location in the eastern Caribbean. With the upsurge of fuel prices we may just become a distribution hub to save fuel and time. We already have a growing medical school which simply needs 24 hour access so that families and friends/ businessmen and curious individuals to stop by for a day or two without travelling difficulty. I am an advocate for development and I want to see this Island become an example to its neighbors. .

    Great development and very much needed. Surprised to read about an airline Air Italia scheduled to start operations from Milan to Antigua this Dec. To my knowledge there is no such airline. There is an Air Italy but that operates now under the Meridiana label. Is that the same airline perhaps?

    What! A quarter billion ec and there was already night landing, we spent 100 million to include night landing and there was so much criticism,something is wrong somewhere,there has to be.

      Get real

      How can you compare the two?
      Antigua has a world class airport whilst Dominica has a cow shed! If Antigua cost 98 million, Dominica’s should have cost 98 dollars!

      Anyway, which night landing are you talking about? Dominica does not have night landing.
