New Airport - has it improved things

Has the new airport improved things and speeded up the arrival procedure and better facilities for departures?

Not seen any reviews since it opened

Apparently the new airport should be finished sometime between April and December.

Hi Ming Ming

Being to Antigua before and the new terminal building is something to look forward to after years of the old 1, not being since 1012

thanks DTGO101

Certainly something to look forward to, Lynda! Just ensuring people aren't confused and wondering if there is an entirely new airport under construction (like on St Vincent). :)

Yes we are. But I suspect later in 2014 than had been anticipated...
