Ceremony marks new airport tower

The completion of the latest phase of building Jersey Airport's new air traffic control tower has been marked with a ceremony.

The topping out ceremony was held to mark the completion of the top of the 130ft (40m) tower.

The airport said following completion of the construction stage, due in early November 2009, it would be fitted out with its equipment and staff trained.

The tower is due to become fully operational by spring 2010.

The new tower is at the eastern end of the departures hall and will replace the existing tower on top of the arrivals hall.

The airport's old tower will be knocked down next autumn after the new tower becomes operational, airport bosses said.
