Bahamas to install new airport radar system

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) -- The largest international airport in the Bahamas is to receive a new radar system as part of a $15 million project.

Government officials say the current radar system at Lynden Pindling International Airport in the capital of Nassau is several decades old. The government said this week that crews also will build an approach control center and that it will hire an additional 20 air traffic controllers.

Officials said the new radar will help the Bahamas comply with International Civil Aviation Organization standards.

The project is expected to be completed in September.
