Opening of upgraded areas of Nadi Airport Terminal to be done in stages

Nadi International Airport will open the upgraded departures immigration area to passengers next week.

AFL executive chairman Faiz Khan said “we are opening the upgraded areas of Nadi Airport Terminal Modernisation Project in stages.”

“The upgraded departures immigration area will be more spacious; will have four dual view X-ray scanning units to enhance security functions (with the capacity for further expansion in the future); and will have 12 immigration counters compared to eight in the past.

“After passing through immigration passengers will go up the escalator to the duty free shopping; food and beverages outlets; and lounge area,” Khan explained.

“These changes in departures immigration will increase our passenger throughput capacity by 50 per cent from 600 to 900 per hour.  Passengers will spend less time queuing up and more dwell time to enjoy our shopping experience in the departures lounge,” Mr Khan added.

“Infrastructure upgrade is but one aspect of our modernisation project.

“However, as there are different stakeholders such as airlines, immigration and security involved in processing passengers we are working with them to ensure seamless, compliant and efficient processing,” Mr Khan said.

Mr Khan further explained that “Air New Zealand opened its new VIP lounge on Thursday November 3.

“The fit-outs done by Air New Zealand are truly exceptional,” he said.
