Then & Now

Then & Now - the Airport

The general shape is somewhat the same, but just about everything else is different at the Grantley Adams International Airport (below), which for many years was known as the Seawell Airport (seen at top).

Back in 1949 when Seawell opened as Barbados' first airport, flights only came in once a week - on Wednesdays.

Now the GAIA, which was extensively refurbished between 2000 and 2006, welcomes flights seven days a week, 365 days a year.
