Governor Mark Capes said: “The new design sits well with the surrounding area, using an attractive mix  of glass and natural stone.  It compares very favourably with airport terminals that I have used on many other small islands, and gives us a structure that we can be proud of.”

The special meeting was called because the plan had to approved by the end of the week under the terms of the airport contract.

Mr Capes read out a letter from the planning control board, which considers major planning applications before they are considered by the governor “in council”.

The board said the new look was “a vast improvement in design and finish” compared with the plan originally presented in 2006.

The letter said: “We would like to congratulate the architects.”

After the vote, Mr Capes said: “That was fairly easy, I think.”
