A bit of history

Christopher Columbus set foot on the island on his second voyage in 1493.

The airfield was built in 1942, initially for US Army military operations. It was dedicated to civil aviation in the 1950s and was named V.C. Bird in honour of the very first Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda.
