The Caribbean Airport That A.I. Built

The Premier of Anguilla spoke to Thrillist about how domain name registrations have helped to fund an ‘envy of the Caribbean’ airport, which will likely also result in cheaper flights and more tourism.

It’s pretty much the place you picture if told to imagine paradise. But right now Webster has another reason to be happy: Work has begun on upgrading the terminal at Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport. Plans for an airport terminal that would be “the envy of the Caribbean” have been floating about for 50 years, repeatedly thwarted as the money for it has just never been there.
