After being evicted from the Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) more than one year ago, Cat Island Air is “two to three weeks” away from being back in operation, its owner telling Tribune Business yesterday: “It’s going to be bigger and better.”

Speaking to this newspaper, Albert Rolle said that after being out of operation for a year-and-a-half, Cat Island Air was going to be back in operation “sooner rather than later”.

Mr Rolle said: “Things are moving forward. We are still waiting on NAD. My attorney is working with their attorney. A lot of people don’t actually know what happened. They were wrong for what they did. I am looking at the next two to three works or so, and I should be up and back in service. Things are going to get back to normal; it’s going to come back sooner rather than later; and it’s going to be bigger and better.”

The airline, founded in 1987, offered flights to five islands – Abaco, the Berry Islands, Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador. It was evicted from the domestic terminal at LPIA, with Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) officials stating at the time that the eviction was due to non-payment of fees.
