Report: Officials Fear Halt in Operations at Grenada Airport

According to the Antigua Observer, fears that Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport could halt operations have surfaced as airlines serving the island from international markets have begun paying money into an escrow account, authorities confirmed on Thursday.

According to the report, the payments have been redirected as a result of an order from an American court amid a lingering dispute between Grenada and Taiwan, the chairman of the airports authority, Rodney George, has confirmed.

Virgin Atlantic, American Airlines, British Airways and Delta have been forced to comply with the court order to pay money owed to the Grenada Government into an account setup by Taipei.
