THE NEW multi-million dollar Abaco airport terminal is expected to be completed in 2012.
The Prime Minister with cabinet ministers flew to Abaco yesterday to officially sign a $27 million contract to construct the new Marsh Harbour airport terminal.
At the contract signing ceremony for the construction of the Marsh Harbour Airport Terminal Building, Air Traffic Control Tower and Fire/Crash Rescue Facility, Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said the project has been a long time coming, almost 30 years in the making.
The 51,000 sq ft terminal will include 22 counter positions, state-of-the-art luggage scanning system, pilot briefing room, two restaurants, a lounge, VIP lounge, eight retail shop spaces, two kiosks, long and short term parking areas along with taxi and employee parking areas, said Mr Grant.
