A spokesperson said, “BAA is responsible for oversight of on-going airport operations and performance to ensure accountability to all contractual obligations in the on-going operations and airport redevelopment.

“The Bermuda Airport Authority is also responsible for services retained by the Government, including air traffic control operations, Bermuda Weather Services and airport navigation equipment maintenance.”

Senator Fahy stated: “We had an opportunity to receive an update on the progress of the construction. We learned that it is on schedule and that more than 60 percent of the man-hours worked so far have involved Bermudian labour.

“Bermudians are participating in the practice of industry leading safety standards, including training that will be useful in future endeavours.”
