As part of a Government reform program in the aviation sector, 10 Government operated Airfields including Honiara and Munda International Airports currently managed under the Ministry of Communication and Aviation (‘MCA’) will be transferred across to Solomon Islands Airports Corporation Limited (‘SIACL’).
