Bird Rock, Basseterre (Monday 15th August 2022) – The St. Christopher Air & Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) will be engaged in a number of changes to the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport in speedy efforts to accommodate the recent announcement made by Prime Minister and Minister of Health in St. Kitts and Nevis – The Hon. Dr. Terrance Drew regarding the removal of all COVID-19 health and travel approval restrictions.
Since the announcement, the SCASPA has engaged in meetings with Tourism, Immigration, and the National Task Force on guidance to accommodate the directive.
To date, the following adjustments have been made:
- Removal of all masks wearing signages from its governed ports (including the RLB International Airport).
- Notify all airlines of the changes.
- Cancellation of the existing restrictive Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM’s) which serves as a significant notice containing essential information to all personnel involved in flight operations at the RLB International Airport to indicate lift of restrictions.
The Authority is currently engaged with technicians and advisors as it relates to structural alterations such as the removal of the temporary stationed “Welcome Center” that was placed to accommodate passengers during the early stages of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Other upcoming changes will include passenger movement shifts–both in the Arrival and Departure area, and the resumption of the RLB Rehabilitation Project – commencing with the resurfacing of the tarmac area that was once occupied by the Welcome Center.
