Port Vila Bauerfield International Airport is the main gateway to Vanuatu. The airport’s international terminal building was constructed 12 years ago with the assistance from the Government of Japan.

In 2003 the airport started undergoing renovations, which lasted 3 years. The works were completed in July 2005. Over 17 million Euros have been invested in upgrading of the aviation infrastructure. These funds were made available in a mixed package of aid grants and soft loans from Australia, the EU, France, New Zealand, the UK and the Vanuatu Government.

The Airports Vanuatu Limited (AVL) has won the international recognition through Airports Council International (ACI) for communications, coming equal fourth with Taiwan in a recent competition between the 1,500 airports which are members of ACI.

The Vanuatu Government’s Council of Ministers has also approved the arrangements for construction of a new international terminal building at Pekoa Airport in Luganville, on Santo island, with the financial assistance from France.
