New Labasa/Vanua Levu International Airport must be able to accommodate 737s

    Fiji Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the proposed New Labasa/Vanua Levu International Airport must be able to accommodate up to Boeing 737 aircraft type to be economically viable (Fiji Times, 12-May-2017). Mr Sayed-Khaiyum explained despite growing demand, the current Labasa Airport can only handle up to ATR sized aircraft, resulting in high airfares due to low yield.
