Buka Airport in Papua New Guinea's Bougainville region will remain closed until 12-Sep-2019 due to security and safety concerns (Radio NZ, 16-Aug-2019). The National Airports Corporation made the decision to close the airport as the result of people and animals wandering onto the tarmac. New perimeter fencing will now be installed.
