The Travel Bug - Issue 9
GEO Magazine coming
GEO Magazine, a product with similar content and
style to National Geographic magazine, is coming to Vanuatu early in the new year, following increasing interest in
Vanuatu from the French and European markets.
The magazine has 5 millions readers in France,
Switzerland, Belgium and Canada. GEO Magazine plans to publish a journey of Vanuatu dedicated to the archipelago,
its people and traditions.
The story is expected to run from 15 to 20 pages.

focus on safety
Airports Vanuatu Limited continues to improve
support services at local airports with a fire truck recently transported to Port Vila from Espiritu Santo Island
for repairs and maintenance. Technicians and mechanics from Aviation Fire Services in New Zealand undertook the
work to restore the truck back to 100% fire fighting capability.
This work has now been completed and the fire
truck has handed back to Pekoa Airfield, on Santo. The airport will no longer have to rely on the local fire truck
at Luganville. This is all part of Airports Vanuatu's focus on safety.
In the longer term, AVL management will be seeking
the boards approval to buy another fire appliance and replace the older fire truck which is presently located at
White Grass Airport on Tanna Island. (Source: VTO update – November 2005)
