Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa ,12/06/2018

Staff from Tonga Airport Limited this morning chopped down trees in the areas close to Kaufana airport in ‘Eua which is believed to have caused trouble to Real Tonga’s domestic flights to the island.

Kaufana airport halted its operations for two months because Real Tonga domestic airline suspended its flights to the island.

CEO of TAL – Viliami Ma’ake says, the work was carried out at the Southern side of the airport and it should be completed this week, after they were given the green light to start the work from authorities.

He adds work has been carried out to the runway of the airport in Ha’apai but with the new funds being allocated to this project lately, they will be able to upgrade the runaway as soon as possible.
