Trees that blocked the Lupepau’u airport runway this afternoon have now been cleared.

The airport services are returning to normal tonight, a statement said.

It said a suspension to airport services had been due “to trees and obstacles infringing the approach areas from the sides of the runway (i.e the Leimatu’a and Holonga side).”

Works conducted to remove these trees and obstacles are now confirmed to be completed, it said.

“The Civil Aviation Division of the Ministry of Infrastructure wishes to thank the people of Leimatu’a and Holonga for their cooperation and support that enable this project to proceed smoothly till the end.”
