Ian Flemming International Airport Runway Expansion

Projects » Ian Flemming International Airport Runway Expansion


The Airports Authority of Jamaica is planning to expand the Ian Fleming International Airport (IFIA) at Boscobel, in the parish of St. Mary. The main component of this proposed expansion is an extension of the length of the runway so as to make the airport capable of accommodating larger aircraft than those which are currently being served.

The proposed extension will have the runway ending just beyond the edge of the existing shoreline. AAJ has also envisaged that the extended end of the runway will have to be heavily armoured in order to protect it from disruption by hurricane forces, as such CEAC Solutions was engaged to investigate the extreme wave and storm surge conditions that can affect the site and to propose a suitable configuration for the protection works. Designs and cost estimates were produced for options including rock revetment and concrete armour units.
