BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, JANUARY 13TH 2012 (CUOPM) – Airline passengers and employees at the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport will soon be more comfortable.
The St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) said Thursday a new chiller has already been delivered onsite, and a team of technicians was recently on island to conduct the pre-installation checks.
“It is expected that by the end of January, the new unit will be installed,” bringing an end to the discomfort and inconvenience of departing and arriving passengers, airport employees and other users.
The new Carrier AC chiller unit and a specially designed management system will replace the malfunctioning unit.
SCASPA said plans are also progressing to have the escalator in the Arrivals Hall back in service.
“The contracted maintenance provider has identified the problem, and the new part is being sourced. Passengers who prefer not to use the steps may take the elevator in the meantime,” said a statement from the port authority.
The Management of SCASPA deeply apologies to tenants, passengers and the general public for the current situation at the Airport, and assures all that measures are being taken as quickly as possible to provide a comfortable atmosphere once more.
