A statement from GCAA says that all aircraft operators have been notified of the development and that the Public Works Ministry is working fervently to effect repairs to the airstrip so that normal air transport operations can be restored at the earliest opportunity.

GCAA regrets the inconvenience caused and asserts that it remains committed to ensuring the safety of passengers and aircraft operations.
