Fig Tree News TeamThe Fig Tree News Team at has recently learned that the Bahamas government is considering, in its perceived response to evolving aviation security requirements as suggested by the U.S., such drastic alternatives as limiting the total number of AOE's [airport of entry/international gateway] in the country to as few as five.

Mr. Cyril Saunders, Director of Civil Aviation, in his challenge of meeting international AOE requirements, has asked that his representatives from Civil Aviation meet with a panel of Aviation Council members in order to put forward positive means of securing as many of our AOE's as possible with an eye toward limited budget and narrowing time constraints.

Input from everyone - not only your concerns for continuing business, but also your constructive suggestions for mapping alternate security plans for our AOE's is vital to this endeavor. Please! Help us keep all of the Bahamas' AOE's open. Send your comments to, where they will be compiled and forwarded to the CAB.

As more information becomes available, we will keep the community informed.
