Norfolk Island International Airport (IATA: NLK, ICAO: YSNF) is the only airport on Norfolk Island, an external territory of Australia.

History

The airstrip was built during World War II as a defensive measure to counter feared Japanese operations in the South Pacific. As Norfolk Island did not have enough flat ground, several bulldozers were used to knock the tops off of several hills, and fill in the valleys between them. Steel mesh was then used to make a solid surface. Initially used for bomber patrols and for a transport service to Bougainville Island, the airfield was never used as a major base and became a stopover for aircraft travelling between Australia, New Caledonia, New Zealand and the Solomon Islands. The Royal New Zealand Air Force left the airfield in July 1946. At the airfield was an air-sea rescue unit, a servicing section and a radar unit installation at Mount Bates.

Light Aircraft Transit

Norfolk Island internsional Airport is an important transit and refueling point for light aircraft flying between Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. 460 nautical miles / 852 km to the South East is Kaitaia Airport the most northerly airfield in New Zealand; 407 nautical miles / 754 km to the North is Noumea Airport in New Caledonia, and 486 nautical miles / 900 km to the West is Lord Howe Island Airport from which it is 323 nautical miles / 600 km to the Australian mainland. These distances are within the range of many light aircraft when fitted with long range tanks, while the direct distance without using Norfolk Island as a stepping stone, is usually beyond their capabilities. From New Caledonia other Pacific Islands such as Vanuatu and Fiji are within range and can be used as further 'stepping stones' to the other South Pacific and North Pacific destinations.
