Nausori International Airport has been a hive of activity this week with the Airports Fiji Limited team working hard to cater for the additional traffic.

The Nausori Airport has not been this busy internationally before.

International aircraft arrived this week carrying disaster relief supplies for those affected by the Category 5 Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Others provided aerial surveys. Helicopters buzzed in and out.

Australian Air Force C17-A Globemasters became the biggest aircraft to use Nausori airport.

Nausori Airport has handled the pressure quite well and indeed shows its potential as a key link to other countries.

Indeed the efforts of Airports Fiji Limited team cannot go unnoticed as not only have they stepped up, but all aeronautical charges have been waived.

This includes air navigation and landing fees for all aircraft involved in relief operations.

On top of all the international support flights, Fiji Airways, Fiji Link, Northern Air and other local flights continued.

Fiji Link also provided medical evacuations to Suva.

Well done, AFL.
