In a region as dispersed as the Pacific Islands, airports represent more than a travel hub: they are links to the world, jobs, specialized health care, and a vital connection to markets for many businesses.
The World Bank has supported the government of Vanuatu through the US$73.9 million Vanuatu Aviation Investment project to repair and rehabilitate the country’s three main airports.
Tourism is a major employer in Vanuatu and central to the country’s economy.
