SLASPA: definitely not ‘business as usual’
The Saint Lucia Sea and Ports Authority (SLASPA) brand vision:
“To be the ultimate modern gateway, creating a network of possibilities for economic and social growth and development through the connection of people, partners and the world.”
Saint Lucia: breaking records for tourism
Saint Lucia has huge pride in its tourism product and industry, and in the exceptional service provided to visitors.
Saint Lucia: a ‘must see’ cruise destination
The number of cruise passengers visiting the island has risen dramatically in recent years, and the growth looks set to continue.
Delivering services that meet the highest expectations
SLASPA facilitates trade and welcomes visitors arriving by sea and air.
Port Castries and Port Vieux Fort
complement each other in the services they offer.
An airport for the future
HIA’s world-class infrastructure will meet the expectations of more and more international visitors.
Environmental considerations have been high on the agenda in drawing up the airport development plans. The design makes provision for all aspects of climate change. The roof system has been designed to allow for the installation of solar energy panels, and charging stations for electric cars will also be provided as required.
Flood mitigation works and other environmental mitigation will be part of the development. The final design of the HIA development is the result of a huge amount of consultation by SLASPA – with the Airports Council International (ACI), IATA, the Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority, Saint Lucia’s military, aviation and development control authorities and a wide range of partners and stakeholders, including airlines, fuelling companies, taxi drivers, concessionaires, the Ministry of Health and the Met Office.
From its earliest stages, the master planning involved attention to the tiniest details, to ensure that the new facility fits international, regional and local protocols, and is suitable for updating and phasing as required. The project has involved huge effort on all sides and the result will be of national and international significance. With the newly revamped HIA, Saint Lucia will have the most advanced and attractive airport in the region.
