Inspection of the Lomlom airstrip on Reef Islands, Temotu province has been further delayed.
Thats according to director of aviation George Satu yesterday.
Mr Satu said final team to inspect the runway should leave this coming Saturday but since he is traveling overseas next week for a meeting the inspection is being further delayed.
“I cancel this final inspection since I’m traveling overseas for a meeting next week.”
The inspection will go ahead once he returns.
He appeals to people of Reef Islands to be patient and call for their understanding.
“Once I return our team will go over to conduct the final inspection, and if approve then Solomon Airlines can start serving the route.”
He said the airstrip is now fully completed awaiting the final recommendation from the aviation authority.
