Nausori Airport Expansion Coming

Most international flights to Fiji land at Nadi International Airport on the west side of Viti Levu. Nausori Airport, 23 kilometers northeast of Suva's capital Suva, is used mostly for domestic services, although some Air Pacific flights from Auckland and Sydney do land at Nausori.

Nausori's runway is too short to receive larger aircraft like Boeing 737-800s and plans to extend it to 345 meters have been announced. Construction of a new terminal building at Nausori Airport will begin next year. These projects are expected to cost $40 million Fijian.

The announcements come after the opening earlier this month of a four-lane Rewa Bridge at Nausori financed by the European Union. More direct flights to Nausori will be welcomed by Suva-bound travelers, and the new bridge already makes getting to the airport that much easier.
