Half-way through the 30-year concession to run the Sangster Airport in Montego Bay, the board of directors of MBJ Airports Ltd has approved an investment of US$40 million to further improve the facility next year.

The multi-million dollar project includes renovation of the ticketing area, the immigration hall and other public areas.

This is in addition to the US$24 million now being spent improving the apron, taxiway and runway.

The disclosure was made by Chief Executive Officer of MBJ Airports, Dr Rafael Echevarne, during a media briefing held at the Sangster International Airport in St James upon the arrival of the four millionth visitor to the island on December 15.

Meanwhile, commenting on the growth in visitor arrivals, Echevarne said that the four percent projected growth in passengers passing through the airport this year has doubled to eight percent thereby putting the facility “under a lot of pressure.”
