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.
