Civil Aviation



To effectively manage safe, secure, and reliable aviation services and generate revenue to improve self-sufficiency.

The Government of Niue has adopted the New Zealand Civil Aviation Rules (CARs) for its aviation legislation. New Zealand CARs are based on standards and recommended practices (SARPs) contained in the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) Annexes to the 1944 Chicago Convention. For the past few years, the Director of Civil Aviation has been working very hard, with the support of the Pacific Aviation Safety Office (PASO) to update and streamline Niue’s Civil Aviation Act to reflect the industry developments since 1966.

It is important that Niue’s Hanan International Airport can operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to support the current Air New Zealand services as well as any additional operations or emergency diversions in the future. Improving airport facilities for passenger comfort and satisfaction will provide additional revenue-generating opportunities that will support day to day operational costs.

We are very grateful for our partners such as PASO who have supported our visions and ambitions to ensure we will always meet international standards and requirements.
