From the PJIA site.
"PJIAE N.V. and Ballast Nedam International Projects B.V. to conduct official signing to signify the start of the Airport Terminal Reconstruction Project.
On Tuesday, August 24, 2021, an official signing with the General Contractor of the Airport Terminal Reconstruction Project, the Ballast Nedam International Projects B.V. (BNIP), was held at the former Check-In Hall at the Princess Juliana International Airport.
The event signified the start of one of the most anticipated reconstruction projects of the company’s history, following the consequences of the massive devastation to the structure during Hurricane Irma in 2017.
The Airport Terminal Reconstruction Project is jointly funded by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Sint Maarten Trust Fund. The Sint Maarten Trust Fund is financed by the Government of the Netherlands, managed by the World Bank, and implemented by the National Recovery Program Bureau (NRPB).
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Princess Juliana International Airport, Mr. Brian Mingo, and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ballast Nedam International Projects B.V., Mr. Roy van Eijsden, was in attendance to lead the signing in the presence of the esteemed guests during a closed ceremony.
“This is a major milestone for the country, PJIAE NV and our staff. I would also like to compliment the project team with this accomplishment, despite the hurdles such as COVID-19, which complicated the works tremendously, they never lost focus and made the impossible, quite possible. I also would like to thank all stakeholders not forgetting our shareholders, the Princess Juliana International Airport Holding Board (PJIAH) and the Government of Sint Maarten for their patience and consistent support over the last year. I am proud to announce that we finally can start rebuilding the “Airport of the future." announced Mr. Brian Mingo.
The construction portion of the Airport Terminal Reconstruction Project will take a phased-planned approach over a two-year period, following the mobilization of the contractor in August 2021. The project is an essential renovation development, which will further modernize the fifteen-year-old terminal building.
The reconstruction project is on schedule to start by the end of September 2021 and be completed by quarter two of 2023, however, sections of the terminal building will begin to come online from as early as December 2022. ."

We should start a finishing pool!!! It's been 4 years coming up on the exact date!!! AND NOTHING nada has been done! IMHO! this whole thing was another scam that has gone terribly wrong!! People use to bitch about the old airport, oh it's not this, it's not that!! Yeah it had it's ups and downs, but it was small and could have been rebuilt in a short period of time. It was stated that completion is around August of "23". LOL!!! My money is on "25"!!! Nothing moves at the speed of light down there why should this be any different!!! Taking bets anyone??? Give me my bags, let me be on my way!! Stamp stamp,
to the beach!

Not at all surprised at that. Knowing what we know of Mr. Derby we know there’s something in it for him beyond just doing his civic duty.


Respectfully,

Not sure Canadians or Americans should be criticizing any other country at this point. True or not, neither should be making comment.
