Where Barbados Takes Flight with Birdair's PTFE Elegance at Grantley Adams Airport
The Grantley Adams International Airport airport is the only designated port of entry for persons arriving and departing by air in Barbados and operates as one of the major gateways to the Eastern Caribbean. It has direct service to destinations in the United States, Canada, Central America and Europe. Birdair engineered and designed the PTFE canopy roofing system which encapsulates approximately 75,000 sq.ft., providing an aesthetic, yet functional look.
In 2016, the airport was the eighth-busiest airport in the Caribbean region and the third-busiest airport in the Lesser Antilles after Queen Beatrix International Airport on Aruba and Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport on Guadeloupe. The GAIA also remains an important air-link for cruise ship passengers departing and arriving at the Port of Bridgetown, and a base of operations for the Regional Security System (RSS), and the Regional (Caribbean) Police Training Centre.
