In order to meet the increase in demand for private jet parking at the Nadi international airport, the Airport Fiji Limited is carrying out major upgrading to its apron area. Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) executive chairman Faiz Khan says this latest development responds to an in private jets entering the country and using the Nadi International Airport.

?We currently have an apron area which caters for nine aircrafts at any given time but we have planned for the future to ensure that private jet owners are able to get a parking,? he said.

?This is a different project altogether but running in parallel with the facelift of the airport terminal.?

Mr Khan added that the multi ? million dollar project would boost Fiji?s capabilities as the hub of the pacific.

?We are planning for the future and we do not want to turn away jets who arrive and want a parking space. This is a future minded plan for AFL,? Mr Khan said. He added the facelift renovations taking place at the airport was progressing well.

?We?re well underway on the airport terminal and facelift project and will be open as scheduled.?
