Government officials and staff from Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) are now looking at possible sites to build an international airport in the Northern Division.
Divisional planning officer Northern Alipate Bolalevu said the North needed a potential site for an international airport because of investors and developments already taking place.
“Nothing is confirmed yet. We do not want to raise hopes but yes an international airport in Vanua Levu is in Government’s five to 20-year plan,” Mr Bolalevu said.
AFL executive chairman Faiz Khan said: “We are exploring possible options for an International Airport and the main reason we are doing this is because the Labasa and Savusavu airport do not have room for any expansion.”
He said the AFL was working with Government for a potential site in Vanua Levu and a bigger area to accommodate Fiji Links and Fiji Airways as well.
