LABASA bound flights from August 31 to September 13 will be diverted to Savusavu Airport as the $1.8million upgrade starts at Labasa's Waiqele Airport.
Airports Fiji Limited general manager Lawrence Liew confirmed this yesterday, saying the airport would be closed during the maintenance period.
The situation has forced an increase in flights by Pacific Sun to service the Savusavu route during the Labasa Airport closure.
"We are reminding our customers that all flights for Vanua Levu will only be made to Savusavu Airport as upgrade works will be undertaken in Labasa," Mr Liew said in a statement.
"Government has allocated funds to repair and upgrade the runway and fire station at the airport.
"Labasa is a key airport in the north and we understand the inconvenience it will cause but safety is paramount, thus it's only proper we fix the runway."
Pacific Sun manager Shaenaz Voss said flights by the airline to Labasa would be ceased but their services would increase in Savusavu during this period to "relieve some of the pressure because of the Labasa Airport closure."
