Project for Improvement of Pohnpei International Airport (Federated States of Micronesia)

An airport that had been in service for more than 40 years was renovated. Increasing the length of the runway relaxed restrictions on the transport of passengers and cargo, and made the airport easier to use.

Air transport is a key means of travel for the Federated States of Micronesia, not only to go overseas, but also to connect the multitude of islands scattered around the country. Approximately forty thousand passengers annually use Pohnpei International Airport, which was opened in 1969, as a capital airport. The airport has been in service for more than 40 years since its opening, and had considerably deteriorated. Lengthening the runway was a primary requirement. The improvement project also fully renewed the airport into a highly convenient facility. The renovation project was funded by grant aid from the Japanese government and funds from the US Federal Aviation Administration. The runway was lengthened by Japanese construction companies based on their excellent record with marine civil engineering.
