Norfolk island international airportBackground

The Norfolk Island International Airport is the gateway to Norfolk Island for visitors and locals alike, it is one the most important pieces of infrastructure on the island.

The first runway was constructed on Norfolk Island with the assistance of the United States Air Force and the first aircraft to use it was a Lockheed Hudson bomber on the 25 December 1942. Today the Island receives five commercial operations per week from Auckland, Sydney and Brisbane.

The largest aircraft regularly utilising the Airport is presently the Airbus A320 and general aviation traffic equates an annual average of 2.5 arrivals a week.

In addition to regular commercial flights the airport is crucial for medical evacuations to Australia.

The Airport contains 120 hectares of land, 95 of which are used for aviation purposes, this includes: primary and secondary runways, the airport terminal and terminal carpark.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) regulates the Airport on safety matters and the Department of Infrastructure and Transport and Local Government regulates on matters relating to security. Audits are carried out by these Departments to ensure that the systems and processes in place meet the requirements of both the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations and the Aviation Transport Security Regulations legislation.

The Norfolk Island International Airport maintains an enviable safety record and remains at all times fully compliant with relevant legislation.
