This airport, which is sometimes called Norfolk Island International Airport, is an island airport which is located on Northfolk Island, an external territory of Australia. The airport originally opened as a defensive base during the World War Two. The airport serves both passengers and cargo aircraft. The airport has two runways and a small passenger terminal, which features a number of basic facilities including a café. Adjacent to the terminal building is a small cargo terminal for processing cargo aircraft which use the airport. While Norfolk Island Airport is relatively small, it can handle aircraft up to a Boeing 737 or similar in size. Private jets are welcome at this airport, but the airport should be contacted directly to arrange landing slots.
