Alfredo Garcia On The Issue Of Wind Affecting The Argyle International Airport

Head of the Che Contingent currently working at the Argyle International Airport, Alfredo Garcia has reiterated that the wind will not pose any problems when the airport becomes operational.

He made this statement, during a recent tour by Members of Cabinet, led by Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, to the site of the International Airport at Argyle.

Mr. Garcia said they have been conducting Wind Studies in the area for a number of years now and the wind conditions at the airport site is not different from what is found in other regional countries that have International Airports.

He said the only cause for concern is the cross winds and from the studies they have conducted, it is safe to say that the cross winds will not be a problem.

Mr. Garcia said they recently held discussions with the operators of planes in St. Vincent and the Grenadines is relation to constructing a cross wind runway and it was agreed that this will not be necessary.
