Tourism Minister Viliame Gavoka has revealed the government’s plans to construct an airport in Yasawa.

Gavoka says that Denarau in Nadi currently accommodates 40 per cent of Fiji’s tourism and he envisions Yasawa becoming a tourism hub similar to the Coral Coast.

He believes the establishment of a substantial airport capable of handling ATR aircraft will attract investments to the Yasawa Group.
