Caye Caulker Airstrip to be completed by June

1 min read

The Caye Caulker airstrip has been in disrepair for some time now. As a result, the airstrip has been closed until the repairs can be completed. The Belize Airports Authority has announced that works on the Caye Caulker Municipal Airstrip are in progress which includes the rehabilitation and widening of the runway. There will also be the installation of a new runway lighting system that will allow for night-time landing capabilities. The project is expected to be completed by mid-June, at which time the airstrip will once again be accessible.  Meanwhile, the Sir Barry Bowen Municipal Airport is also expected to undergo some works; in this case, the works will not disrupt operations since flights will be relocated to the taxiway which is equipped to be used as a temporary runway. The work is a part of the BAA’s Strategic Plan to upgrade the country’s aerodrome and the duration of the works is for four days.
