Saint Lucia Breaks Ground For First Fixed Based Operation At HIA

Saint Lucia Thursday morning officially broke ground for the construction of the first Fixed Based Operation (FBO) at Hewanorra International Airport.

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet says the new facility  will provide premium services to private and corporate air-crafts.

Writing on his official Facebook page, Chastanet disclosed that Caribbean aviation services provider I.A.M. Jet Centre Group will be working along with the Saint Lucia Air & Seaports Authority (SLASPA) to implement the project over the next 6 months.

He said the facility will consist of a 7,000-sq-ft terminal with dedicated in house customs and immigration processing, premium lounge spaces, a meeting room, crew rest area, and security screening.

“This project is particularly special, as it was initially conceived back in early 2007 when I was then Minister for Tourism with the support of then Prime Minister and father of the nation the late Sir John Compton,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister explained.

“I want to thank the Management and staff of SLASPA for the commitment and hard work which they put in to finally get this project going and also to the team from I.A.M Jet Centre Group for having the confidence to invest Saint Lucia,” he stated.

I.A.M Jet currently operates FBO’s in Barbados, Montego Bay, Grenada and Tortola.


  1. I don’t know if to believe what the Prime Minister have said because he has said sooooo many lies.
    Might be another lie again.

  2. Yea, but some things you can’t lie on. On this one he is good. ‘The Son also rises.’

  3. What else those comments going to be cretisizing condemning and complaining for their own country yet they’ll cretisiz it SLP gooroos.

But just water ojr lips..Prime Minister..the vigie airport is in a deplorable condition..we welcome perhaps close to onr hundred thousand lucians and caribbean nationals in there and thr place looks like.
