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.
