Photos: New Airport Terminal To Open Tomorrow

December 8, 2020 | 24 Comments

[Updated with more photos] The new airport terminal is scheduled to officially open for operations tomorrow [Dec 9] and the photos below show a small advance look at the new facility.

A spokesperson previously said, “The new, purpose-built Airport Terminal will officially open for operations on December 9, 2020. The 288,000 square foot facility will provide for improved passenger processing; increased passenger capacity; greater resilience to extreme weather conditions; modern amenities and infrastructure; greater energy efficiencies; enhanced security; enhanced specialty retail and food & beverage outlets; and covered, passenger jet bridges.

Video of a ‘test run’ of a airplane docking at the new terminal:

“The new terminal will also enable Bermuda to comply with the latest, most-advanced U.S. facility requirements for Pre-Clearance. Pre-Clearance allows for U.S. bound passengers to clear U.S. Customs and Immigration in Bermuda, instead of on arrival in the U.S. where longer lines often exist.

“This service, present in Bermuda for nearly 50 years, is extremely beneficial to passengers and provides the island with a competitive advantage when seeking new air services to and from the United States.

“There were 885 Bermudians who worked on the site over the course of the airport redevelopment project, which began in March 2017 and a total of 1.6 million construction manhours. Additionally, the project engaged almost 400 Bermudian companies, vendors and suppliers in what became an extraordinary collaboration of local and international efforts.”

Update 2.43pm: We added 20 more photos below, and also for those wondering if there will be an official opening event – yes, one is scheduled for tomorrow and we should have coverage of that, the photos today are just so everyone can have a look at parts of the new terminal.

    I wonder if there will be an official opening ceremony with members of our current Government present?

    • LOL says:

      You want the plpBIU party #30 to attend a airport that was supposed to be free to taxpayers according to obaUBPErrs party #6 but now is costing Bermudians 20 million plus a year and counting. :)

      • Navin Johnson says:

        Oh don’t forget the Horsepital cost $35,000,000 a year adjusted for inflation for the next 30 years.. over ONE BILLION for the Hospital by the PLP/BIU

      • Navin johnson says:

        How about the Horsepital that the PLP/BIU built for $35,000,000 a year for 30 years..over ONE BILLION for the Hospital….

      • sandgrownan says:

        Not the sharpest knife in the drawer are you?

      • Ray says:

        Now thats funny!

      • Micro says:

        Nothing is free. And the obligation to make up any difference in operating income guaranteed by the government was revealed early on. The deal was no different than the hospital deal and currently still costs less than the PLPs plan to build a new airport

    • Doctor says:

      Your I.Q. TEST came back NEGATIVE.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      Members of the previous PLP Government were there for the roof wetting. Bernews even had pictures

  2. Bermudian says:

    Beautiful! An airport Bermuda deserves.

    • Acegurl says:

      I totally agree Bermudian. A first world country, amongst the top standards of living in the world with a third world airport.

  3. Watching says:

    I hear Bob Richards will be cutting the ribbon!

  4. Looks awesome! The only thing now needed is a name change, “Bob Richards Int,” would be far more appropriate.

    • Mixitup says:

      “Bob Richard Intl.?” You are joking right?

      • Why would I be joking?? I don’t know how well your memory is working, but I know mine is just fine, and I can distinctly remember the vast protest against this airport and they were all lead by the plp opposition at the time, so why should any name that is attached to them be on the new airport terminal keeping in mind it was Bob Richards that got this remarkable achievement done!!

        As a Bermudian when I lived there up until 2yrs ago, who used to use the old airport at least 14 times a year, and who also have seen more than most would have with the old airport, which includes water literally poring through the ceiling tiles while tourist looked on in horror, I can tell you straight up the old terminal was well past its sell by date, and Bob Richards got it done, NOT the plp!

        Again I say, Bob Richards Int!!

        • Joe Bloggs says:

          Let’s take the politics out it.

          Kim Swan has been an MP for both parties.

          Wayne Furbert has been an MP for both parties.

          Personally, my preference would be Sir E.T. Richards International Airport

          • ?? I never thought of politics when I said what I said, Bob Richards deserves the credit for this new Air Port, not sure why you think E.T’s name should be attached to it?

  5. puzzled says:

    Sholom.

  6. Smithy says:

    A big opening for goverment and other officials was do to be helded on the 4th od December.

  7. Wing nut says:

  8. 747 says:

  9. Boston Whaler Owner says:

    I can hear Security practising their speech
    “Passports,Boarding Cards,Covid Certificates,Face Masks”

    (I’m going fishing,I’m hungry).

  10. R. Smith says:

    How come the picture that has “customs nothing to declare” which is the 19 picture if I counted right, the poll looks so old like it needs a new paint job?
