March 28, 2019 | 6 Comments

Skyport has released the latest episode of ‘Taking Off’, a video series with host Mikaela Pearman that highlights the airport redevelopment project, with this episode highlighting the new apron.

Speaking in the episode, Mikaela Pearman said, “If you’ve driven by the site of the airport redevelopment project recently, you’ve seen all the changes. From the foundation being built to the structural steel completion.

“The roof was completed in January, work has started on the new entrance and much more has been accomplished.

“But what you probably haven’t seen is the new apron, you know where airplanes park in front of the terminal. The apron, known as apron 7 will be able to accommodate six airplanes at a time.

“There are six gates at the new passenger terminal building and there will be six passenger boarding bridges. The bridges will be shipped in from Spain.

“Five thousand six hundred yards of concrete has been poured to create the new apron. Each concrete panel is about 400mm or about 16 inches thick.

“The new apron is more than 60 percent finished and is expected to be completed in May. I’ll be back to give you another look when it’s all done.”

    fantastic videos. Now can we get a boat dock at the airport?

    • James says:

      Taxi drivers have always objected to that.
      Also that would be too much fun to be collected by boat!

  2. Micro says:

    The fun part is that if tourism ever really picks up and airlines start filling seats and fly bigger planes, those six gates quickly become three gates.

  3. Tony Brannon says:

    With a Riva to speed guests to waterfront hotels !1

  4. Triangle Drifter says:

    It would not take much to put the dock back. A dock has been promised for decades.

    A wonderful way to arrive for those staying at SP, Cambridge, even Pompano. Get off the plane, onto a boat for a pleasant cruise to your hotel. No traffic or getting berated with a political sermon from a taxi driver.

    Get that causeway replaced & it is even a better ride to Tuckers Point, Rosewood.

      Why wait for that when you can just come on-line and get it from you?
