Haiti Unveils Renovations at Toussaint Louverture International Airport

Haiti President Michel Martelly officially unveiled a series of renovations at Port-au-Prince’s Toussaint Louverture International Airport on Sunday, following his trip to Europe. The renovations include major overhauls to the airport’s arrivals terminal. The President, flanked by Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe and Tourism Minister Stephanie Villedrouin, conducted a ribbon cutting ceremony, which was accompanied by the unveiling of a ceremonial plaque. The first phase includes renovations to a series of areas of the airport, including the baggage claim, infirmary and the arrival terminal. “Modernization will help boost our relations with other countries in the world as we integrate further into the global economic movement,” Martelly said. “At the same time, it puts [this] operation up to the standards of modern aviation.” Thus far, over $6 million has been invested in the project, the government said, with the second phase, which includes renovations of the airport’s departures terminal, already underway. – source
