Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) is looking at managing Nauru and Tonga’s air space from New Zealand.

AFL chairman Adrian Sofield in a statement said while this would bring more money into the country, it will also reduce costs to the Nauru government.

Also he said they were looking after Tongan air space before New Zealand took over.

“We have the equipments and technology to carry out this following the purchasing of new and world class equipment which is the same technology used in Australia and New Zealand and is recognized by the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAAO),” said Sofield.

Fiji also successfully acquired the managing of the air space in Solomon Islands.

“We will take over the looking after Solomon Islands air space from next year from Australia and this shows the capability and advancement of Fiji’s aviation technology,” he said.

He also said their navigation system is highly regarded, very advanced and they want to be the best small airport in the world and the Pacific region.
