Pohnpei International Airport (IATA: PNI, ICAO: PTPN) is an airport located on Pohnpei (formerly Ponape), the main island of the State of Pohnpei and the capital of the Federated States of Micronesia.

The extension of the Pohnpei International Airport began in 2009, and it is anticipated that it will be completed in 2011. The Japanese Government has agreed to provide about US $29 million for the entire project. The project includes extending the runway by 228m and improving the terminal facilities and apron. Enhancements will help solve problems such as when a 727 cargo jet over-run the runway and the airport had to be closed for 6 days in May, 2008.

Airlines and destinations

Like many islands within the region, commercial air service is rather limited due to small population and tourist traffic. The only scheduled passenger services for Pohnpei are Continental Micronesia's "Island Hopper" route between Guam and Honolulu (three times weekly in each direction) and the weekly Guam-Chuuk-Pohnpei flight.

Airlines Destinations
Continental Airlines operated by Continental Micronesia Chuuk, Guam, Honolulu, Kosrae, Kwajalein, Majuro

In addition to passenger services, Asia Pacific Airlines transports cargo (including U.S. mail) to and from Pohnpei.
