Siassi Airport

Wesley Antal, December 28, 2010 at 7:08 am

I last travelled to Siassi (Umboi Island) in June 2010. Trip to Siassi nowadays is by small ship alone as airstrip to date is still closed, due to growing bush cover over the run way. Rise in airfares and lack of government services are two major factors contributing to the closure of the airstrip.

I took a small ship to and from Umboi Island in 2004 (to search for the cryptic called "Ropen"). A few weeks later, two of my associates took a small private plane to the island. I know that the runway was used until at least late 2004.

I last travelled to Siassi airstrip on a Briten Norman Islander in 2000. The airstrip to date is still closed to all flights due to growing bush covering the runway. Lack of government action has seen the deterioration of this airstrip. People travelling to the island often travel by sea, and endure an 8 hour walk across deep ravines and rivers before arriving at their intended place/village.
