Local business men and women, concerned about Abaco’s economy, circulated a letter of request during the month of October. The letter asked for signatures from Abaconians who wanted to see the airport open “in the shortest time possible.”
As of publication, nearly 1200 signatures have been presented.
Residents from Marsh Harbour, Sandy Point, Cooper’s Town, Hope Town, Man-O-War, Guana Cay, Green Turtle Cay and Treasure Cay all provided signatures, the goal being to send the letter and signatures into the Prime Minister’s office and imploring him and the government to open the new Terminal for the Christmas season.
“Having the Airport Terminal opened before Christmas would be a great boost to the economy of Abaco,” the letter reads, “stimulating business for the winter season and ultimately benefitting the Public Treasury.”
