Vai International Airport (Guaiian Vaitango Caupalaóuni Vai) (WAAT: VIA, ANACA: NGVA) is Guai's main international and intercontinental airport. Located at TBC to the northeast of Vai centre and TBC to the south of Pirindi, the airport lies on the territory of Jom municipality. The airport is still colloquially referred as Jom Airport (Guaiian Vaitango Jom). Vai International Airport serves as hub for Guai Airways and FlyMe.

History

Early History

The airport began as an airstrip of 2 concrete runways on the outskirts of the town of Jom. It was built in 1927 for military purposes. The civil terminal was built in 1938 where the Central Hall is now located. As civil aviation made progress in the 1940s and 1950s, a new terminal (future terminal B) was built, in 1954, to the west of the original terminal. Both runways were lengthened to 2,000 meters.

Extensions

In 1971, to cope with jet airplanes, two piers were built on both sides of the terminal. A ground-level pier (future Terminal A) was added to the west to provide access to propeller aircrafts. Meanwhile, the 1938 Terminal was replaced by the Intermodal Terminal comprising an underground railway station and an overground bus terminal. The apron was widened, both runways were converted into taxiways and new runways 1 and 2 were built along these, farther from the terminal buildings.

In 1988, as the traffic increased, Terminal C was built and Terminal B remodeled to provide access to Terminal C. Runway 3 was built, parallel to Runway 1.

Modern History

In 1998, it was deemed that all terminals needed to be modernized and merged into a single entity. A 5-year modernisation plan was approved by the Government of Guai as well as the municipal authorities of Vai, Jom and the County Council of Urán. The overground part of Intermodal Terminal was destroyed and the bus terminal moved elsewhere. Underground levels as well as the railway station were reshaped. The Intermodal Terminal were replaced by the Central Hall. Terminal A was completely modernized while Terminal B was slightly extended. Terminal C facing and windows were replaced and a pear-shaped extension was added at the end of the pier.
