There has been word of a new airstrip for the island of Caye Caulker and now, it seems the deal has been made. The contract, which was initially being given to Imer Hernandez Development Company at .5 million dollars, will now cost the government , 918, 699 instead.

The initial project was to include plenty additional fixtures and elements but under the new contract, the airstrip will be a more limited and basic design. According to Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr., Minister of Civil Aviation and Tourism, this contract will include only the cost for the core phase of the project and will exclude the external security lighting system, security fencing, the expansion of the runway, the construction of a new terminal, and significant lifting of the runway.
