Grenada is one of four Caribbean countries in the region to benefit from the World Bank Caribbean Regional Air Transport Connectivity Projects.
Along with Dominica, Haiti and St. Lucia, Grenada will benefit from a total of 159 million us dollars, to enhance regional connectivity by improving the safety of air transport and the resilience of the airport infrastructure to natural disasters.
These projects include International Development Association (IDA) financing of 13 million US dollars for Dominica, 17 million for Grenada, 84 million for Haiti, and 45 million us dollars for Saint Lucia.
In Grenada the project will support increased safety and efficiency of airport operations and navigation, make climate resilience improvements, and strengthen the country’s capacity in civil aviation and airport management.
This includes installation of air navigation and safety equipment at the main international airport, construction of a runway end safety area and a resilient air cargo facility, and preparation of an aviation sector strategic plan.
