New Bermuda International Airport Terminal Breaks Ground

Apr 28, 2017

Representatives of the Bermuda Government, Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC), Aecon and Bermuda Skyport Corporation Limited joined together today to officially break ground on the new 277,300 sq. ft. airport terminal.

The ceremony in Hamilton, Bermuda marks the start of construction for the Airport Redevelopment Project, one of the largest infrastructure projects ever undertaken in Bermuda.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in 40 months and will take place away from the existing terminal, allowing L.F. Wade International airport to continue running uninterrupted.

“We are honoured to be able to work with Bermuda on such a historic project,” said Steve Nackan, President, Aecon Concessions. “Over the past two and a half years, we have developed many relationships with Bermuda’s businesses, people and community and we look forward to building on these as we get to work this week. We are not only invested in Bermuda’s airport but also in its future.”

As the constructor of the new airport, Aecon intends on maximizing the use of Bermudian sub-contractors during construction. The first contracts were awarded earlier this week, predominantly to local firms. Aecon is currently recruiting workers for construction of the new terminal as is Skyport for day-to-day operations and maintenance of the existing airport facilities. The project is a major catalyst for job creation. It will boost the local economy and help provide jobs for Bermudians.

Supported by Aecon and significant Project financing, Skyport will have greater resources at its disposal, which will enable it to provide a better experience to those travelling to and from Bermuda. Skyport will also work to develop exciting new airline routes for Bermuda.

The new terminal will start welcoming travellers to Bermuda in 2020.
