Airport Management

Overview of Department:

John A Osborne Airport formerly Gerald’s Airport was dedicated in February 2005 by Princess Anne and the facility was formally opened on 11 July 2005. It has been the life line of air access for Montserrat since the devastation of the Bramble Airport by an eruption of the nearby Soufriere Hills Volcano. It was designed to facilitate mostly the twin otter aircraft. It is the only airport in the Caribbean with a public tunnel under its runway. The airport has to abide by regional and international regulations to remain open, compliant and function as a safe and reliable airport facility.
