New Air Traffic Control system to arrive within weeks-officials


The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda has advised that the AirNav system at the V.C. Bird International Airport has been contracted to arrive Antigua in eight or ten weeks and will be installed shortly thereafter.

It was reported in the press that the system has failed because it is many years old.

“However, the Minister of Aviation has advised that the final payment is about to be made on the replacement system; the modern equipment is to be delivered shortly, and not in the six months that it would normally take,” the government said.

It promised that the substitute RNB system will no longer be relied upon late this year when the modern system is installed.

Air traffic controllers have been mounting pressure on the government to change the outdated system.
