PNG Air ceased all flights to Milne Bay’s Misima Island in January this year because of the poor conditions of the Bwagaoia runway. Henry Leonard said that he wants Misima Airport to be ‘included in the CADIP (Civil Aviation Development Investment Program) so that we can do proper upgrading, sealing and even the construction of the terminal area.’
