The Bermuda Airport Authority has opened new offices at Southside in St David’s.

Mark Fields, chairman of the organisation tasked to oversee the management, operations and redevelopment of the airport, said: “Our organisation is less than a year old.

“We essentially started from nothing, but we are pleased with the leadership of the Authority’s chief executive officer, Lester Nelson, in moving quickly to establish a strong, experienced team of aviation, engineering and financial professionals, as well as internationally recognised technical advisers to oversee Bermuda’s interests in this large and important infrastructure project.”

The Authority, which owns the airport on behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda, was established on March 2 last year.

It was set up to ensure contractual value is delivered throughout the 30-year public-private partnership with Bermuda Skyport Corporation.

The authority’s responsibilities also include air traffic control, meteorological services, aeronautical information services, and airport rescue and firefighting.

The Authority is also responsible for regulating fees and charges.

Walter Roban, the Deputy Premier and Minister of Transport and Regulatory Affairs, said: “I’m delighted to join the Bermuda Airport Authority board and staff in welcoming stakeholders this afternoon.

“I’m happy to say that the authority has moved quickly to position themselves in this important role.

“The LF Wade International Airport is Bermuda’s only air link to the rest of the world and therefore it is vital to our economic lifeblood, essential to international business and tourism.

“We are happy to have these highly qualified Bermudians involved in the protection of our collective interests.”
