Kiribati Airport Visit

23 February 2024

Dunedin Airport warmly welcomed the board and CEO of the Kiribati Airport Authority during their visit to Dunedin with a delegation from Kiribati earlier this week.

Over the two-day visit Dunedin Airport Chief Executive, Dan De Bono and his team hosted the group to a behind the scenes exploration of the inner workings of the airport. The group toured the terminal’s operational facilities and later sat down to exchange knowledge, share insights and strategies. We made the most of the opportunity; discussions ranged from airport certification and infrastructure development to emergency planning, marketing strategies, and air route development.

The network of airports in Kiribati, overseen by the Kiribati Airport Authority, serves as an essential link to this incredible part of the world.  Like Dunedin Airport, this network supports their regions trade, tourism, and key economic activities.

Connectivity is fundamental to sustaining a successful economy and a vibrant community. Dunedin Airport is committed to strengthening our international network through closer relationships with our industry partners, and maintaining friendships like the one we have with the Kiribati Airport Authority.
