Nauru International Airport (IATA: INU, ICAO: ANYN) is the sole airport in the Republic of Nauru. The airport currently connects the country to eight international passenger destinations, all served by Nauru's national airline, Nauru Airlines.

History[edit]

The airstrip was built during the World War II Japanese occupation of Nauru using forced labour and operations began in January 1943. After the war, it was converted to a civilian airport.

The airport is located in the Yaren district, just north of many of the government buildings, including the Parliament House, police station, and the secondary school. The airport holds the head office of Nauru Airlines.[1]

Also located at the airport are the Republic of Nauru Civil Aviation Authority, tasked with airport security and operational management; the Directorate of Immigration, tasked with control of incoming and outgoing passengers, and the Nauru Customs Service.
