Airports Vanuatu focuses 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
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.
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.
