The Taddy Bay Airport on Virgin Gorda has reopened.
Acting Managing Director of BVI Airports Authority Clive Smith said the facility reopened at 4 pm on Friday, August 16.
The BVIAA reported the airport closed on Monday, August 12, because of operational issues with the fire truck based at the facility.
Premier and Minister responsible for airports Andrew Fahie later explained that the absence of a proper facility to house the firetruck contributed to the vehicle experiencing the malfunction.
He stated: “The said fire truck, which was purchased in November 2018, was being left constantly exposed to the [weather] elements during the day, due to the lack of a proper garage facility for securing the vehicle.”
