Video: First Episode Of Skyport’s “Taking Off”

September 28, 2017

Skyport has launched ‘Taking Off’, a video series with host Mikaela Pearman that highlights the airport redevelopment project.

Speaking in the first episode, Mikaela Pearman said, “This is Taking Off, a series where we look at the ins and out of Bermuda Skyport. So, what is Skyport?

“Skyport is a Bermudian special purpose company with responsibility for the L.F. Wade International Airport’s operation, maintenance, and community functions.

“Skyport was created in March 2017 when it took over the Department of Airport Operations to manage the airport redevelopment project over a 30 year term. The new airport, which is currently being built, will be ready in 2020.

“So, why should you care about Skyport? Well, that’s easy.

“Skyport is committed to modernizing the airport’s infrastructure, creating a safer, more comfortable, passenger experience, improving retail and dining options at the airport, providing greater accessibility for physically challenged travelers, negotiating increased airlift and new routes to Bermuda, and providing jobs for Bermudians now and over the long term.

“Speaking of Bermudians, Skyport has 40 staff, the majority are Bermudian. In short, Skyport is an important part of Bermuda’s future.”

        It’s funny to me how when some people say “who is they” it doesn’t seem to have the same halting condemnation as when other people ask.

        Onion Juice I was thinking the same thing about her as well.

    • puzzled says:

      Oh shut up juice and go play with your 24/12 you sheet stirring Ahole.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      Are you that envious of her success that you have to hurl offensive personal insults at her ?

    Skyport, extremely excited for a new airport, we desperately need an upgrade. Can you sort out the immigration/customs situation when arriving. It is appalling. There are very few officers on duty and it takes forever to go through the line…sometimes taking over an hour. Please have a faster system. Additionally can you please have a dock for boaters to pick up guests and drop off people. What a great way to arrive or leave Bermuda. Looking forward to the new airport.

  6. Hi Skyport says:

    I have a few questions SKYPORT???. The current short term parking when picking up arriving passengers holds how many cars and bikes?

    Long Term Parking holds how many cars?

    What’s the numbers on the new airport?

    Good job Ms. Pearman!
