Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) has announced plans to spend $68 million over the next four years on upgrading the airports around the island.
According to local reports, Adrian Sofield, chairman of AFL, said the operator had plans to upgrade the country’s main gateway Nadi International Airport, as well as Savusavu, Nausori and Lasaba airports.
AFL has allocated $15 million towards the upgrades of Nausori Airport and has already invested in new night landing lights.
A further $25 million will be spent on upgrading the overlay of Nadi International Airport.
Sofield added that AFL would upgrade the Labasa airstrip and also extend the runway at Savusavu.
The upgrades form part of AFL’s 20-year master plan, part of which will eventually see $50 million spent on redeveloping Nausori as a full international airport.
