Assessment of airports underway following Hurricane Beryl

President and Chief Executive Officer of the Airports Authority of Jamaica, Audley Deidrick, says an assessment will be done of conditions at the island’s airports following the passage of Hurricane Beryl.

He told JIS news that the assessment is to “attend to any issue that may inhibit opening and state how these will be dealt with in short order for the re-opening of the facilities.”

Mr. Deidrick said the roof of the passenger pier, otherwise called the finger, at Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) sustained damage during the hurricane.

The structure takes the passengers to the jet bridges.

Meanwhile, Mr. Deidrick indicated that he had received no negative report from the Sangster International Airport.

The operators will assess the facility and take a decision on when to re-open.
