Castries – Thursday, December 26, 2013 – The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA), is pleased to advise that as of 3:00 pm today December 26, 2013, the Hewanorra International Airport was reopened and safely accommodated the landing of Condor 4258 and JetBlue 881.
The departure of Condor 4259 and JetBlue 882 was also safely facilitated, processing a total of 460 passengers.
This facilitation was possible through the efforts of the Airport Crews who have worked tirelessly for the past twenty-four hours to clear the debris off the runway and have the terminal ready to receive passengers. In addition, the entire Airport community inclusive of the Airlines, Customs, Immigration worked together to ensure the efficient processing of passengers through the terminal.
Despite this current status, SLASPA’s previous advice is still in effect. Passengers are therefore reminded to contact their respective airlines to check the status of their flights.
Persons and service providers coming to meet or drop off passengers are asked contact their party to obtain the status of their flight before traveling to the airport.
