Government is looking at possible sites for an international airport in the Northern division.
Government officials and staff from Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) did some scoping for possible sites yesterday.
Divisional Planning Officer Northern Alipate Bolalevu says the North needs a potential site for an international airport as investors and developments are already taking place.
He says nothing is confirmed yet, but an international airport in Vanua Levu is in government’s five to 20 year plan.
AFL Executive Chairman Faiz Khan says they are currently conducting preliminary investigations into possible sites.
The Labasa and Savusavu airport do not have room for any expansion.
