Airports in Europe and the Caribbean have made several public notices frequent fliers might need to know about.
From the island Curacao in the Caribbean the airport officials have released a statement about the closing of the Mirador. This is the viewing area many passengers migrate to during their wait while in the airport.
The Mirador area was closed on February 14th and will remain closed until March 31st of this year so routine maintenance in the area can be carried out. This regular maintenance work is necessary due to the high level of saltpeter in the air that accumulates in the Mirador. This affects the surfaces, especially the steel beams which have to be cleaned and repainted to ensure their longevity.
The Genève Airport in Switzerland has just completed their renovation of the Check-in Hall. The renovation work began in June of 2016 which closed off many connections in the airport. All of the previously closed sections are now open again including the vertical connection between the departure and arrival areas in the airport.
As part of the renovation, more than 3,000 square feet of floor space has been added in the terminal to accommodate more venders and places for passengers to rest along with additional airline counters. The food court, restaurants and toilet facilities are now open and operational for guest to use.
