Government is expected to hold further discussions with the landowners of Naselai, Rewa about the expansion of the Nausori Airport.
Attorney General and Minister for Aviation Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says government has a good relationship with the landowners of the Nadi International Airport and they want the same for the landowners at Naselai.
Sayed-Khaiyum says it is critical that the Nausori Airport is upgraded and government is still discussing the land issue with the landowners.
“The idea is to work out the mechanics of it because obviously we want the landowners to benefit from it and – you know – rental etc needs to be worked out. But also we want to help them in terms of developing the land around the airport.”
The Aviation Minister says once they finalize the land issue there will be another four-lane road that will link the airport to Nausori Town.
Some initial work on the expansion has started with the upgrading of the road from the airport to the Nausori Bridge.
