Governor Holiday to Visit SXM Airport

GREAT BAY, St. Maarten (Tuesday, October 28, 2014) His Excellency Governor Eugene Holiday is scheduled to pay an official visit to the Princess Juliana International Airport, SXM, on October 30, 2014.

“We are excited to welcome him since he was President of the airport before his appointment to the position of the first Governor of St. Maarten,” said Regina LaBega, SXM managing director who succeeded him.

The Governor will be given a tour of the facilities of the airport, including the Air Traffic Control tower and will also receive a presentation about the latest and future developments that are being undertaken at the island’s major gateway.

“It is an honor for us, while we’re winding down the celebrations of our 70th anniversary, to bring the Governor up to date with what has been happening at the airport and to show him what we have been able to achieve building on the strong foundation that he laid,” added LaBega.

It was under Governor Eugene Holiday, while he was President of the airport, that the new terminal building and ATC tower were built.
