Airport Overview

Airport and facilities are in fair condition. Runway is in good condition. Although there are no scheduled international flights Munda can accommodate international flights (usually charter) if required, including C130’s. With prior arrangement CAASI will organise customs and quarantine officials to be on hand. There are planned upgrades to bring infrastructure to a standard necessary for Munda Airport runway to be certified by the Civil Aviation Authority of Solomon Islands as an 'emergency alternate status' runway. Civil works include the installation of airfield ground lighting and navigation aids, perimeter security fencing, an airport rescue and firefighting facility and two fire trucks. Project completion is expected in May 2017.

The total flight movement in 2015 was 2,500 flights and 40,000 passengers

There are 33 smaller unpaved airports/airfields in the Solomon Islands, some of which are not fully operational. Many of these runways are still operational after heavy rain as the corral rock provides a solid landing base.

The airports of Gizo, Munda, Seghe, Kirakira, Santa Cruz and Auki are able to accomodate Dash 8’s. The remaining airports if operational are able to receive Twin Otters. There is no night flying equipment and no refueling services at the regional airports.

Munda airport on New Georgia Island can accommodate international (usually charter) flights, including C130’s. The total flight movement in 2009 was 2002 flights.
