Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 01/08/2019

Various feedbacks have been received by Tonga Airport Limited regarding the renovated Fua’amotu international airport that’s currently underway.

The project is funded by Tonga Airport Limited in partnership with the World Bank.

CEO of Tonga Airport Limited – Viliami Ma’ake says, the feedbacks were received mostly from tourists and local people returning home.

Ma’ake adds, the renovations had to be done due to several complaints from international airlines on the airport’s infrastructure.

The concern is because some of the airlines even cancelled their flights to Tonga due to this.

However, an agreement was signed in 2012 with the World Bank for the renovation to be done immediately at the Fua’amotu International airport and the Lupepau’u airport at Vava’u.

The work is expected to be completed by September which includes the extension of the airport’s runway.
