Runways Ready In Lau

Airports Fiji Limited has confirmed that their runways at Cicia, Lakeba, Moala and Vanuabalavu in the Lau group were operational.

Airports Fiji Limited executive chairman, Faiz Khan stated all its aerodromes were ready following a special assessment trip by the company to Lau on Tuesday

Mr Khan said: “With Fiji being hit by the worst cyclone to date, we are grateful that organisations are working together in trying to assist in bringing people’s lives back to normal.

He said they were able to establish contact with people on the ground at Ono-i-Lau around midday on Tuesday making it the last of their outer island stations to be cleared for landing.

He added: “Our terminal buildings in Koro and Vanuabalavu are completely destroyed whilst the fire station in Savusavu is severely damaged.”

Mr Khan thanked Air Kaibu for providing their aircraft to assess areas in Lau.

He concluded: “The spirit of solidarity and resilience at this time of need is evident everywhere and we would like to thank everyone who has come forward to support in our very little efforts.”
