The redevelopment of the airport will cost K55 million under the Asian Development Bank funded Civil Aviation Development Investment Program (CADIP).
Hela Governor, Philip Undialu, said the signing of the agreement is well over due.
He thanked the National Government, NAC, and ADB for considering Hela this time for the redevelopment.
The K55m will be used to do fencing, terminal, and runway sealing.
“For the long term, we are also planning on doing the same for the Komo airport,” says Undialu.
