With this upgrade, a fair go will be given to all those who are willing to tender for space.

Nadi International Airport upgrade has been a long time coming. It is therefore fitting that the gateway to Fiji undergoes a facelift. It will bring the facilities on par with scores of other international airports around the globe.
Under the leadership of Faiz Khan, the AFL board has made some very bold decisions, which will see the face of the airport change. Renewed expressions of interests from those wanting to have retail space within the airport will also be called for. For a very long time, monopoly had been provided to a few chosen outlets.
With this upgrade, a fair go will be given to all those willing to tender for space.
Through the Nadi Airport Terminal Modernisation Project, Airports Fiji Limited also intends to attract more tourists by improving the overall experience of visitors and the Fijians as Nadi aims to become the world’s best small international airport
Airports Fiji on Monday announced that New Zealand construction company Hawkins Infrastructure and local company Pacific Building Solutions were awarded the contract for the Nadi Airport terminal modernisation project. The Hawkins/PBS joint venture bid was based on the strength of their proposal and financial strength of the Hawkins Group and PBS.
Government’s exemption of duty on materials used for the Nadi Airport terminal Upgrade project will also have its benefits for our community.
AFL has already announced that the money saved – some $3million will be used for community projects.
With the right leadership, the entire upgrade project will see Fiji’s airport reaching new heights..
