The airport at Buka in the Papua New Guinea province of Bougainville is open again, after being closed for 24 hours by a group of angry landowners, earlier in the week.
The Post Courier newspaper reported that the landowners wanted US$5 million US dollars in support of various claims against the provisional Bougainville government.
However a senior Bougainville official said he was only aware of a claim for US$200,000.
All Air Niugini and Air Link flights in and out of Buka were cancelled, after the landowner group placed chocks of wood over the airstrip.
The Inter-Government relations minister, Sir Peter Barter, said he was prepared to meet the landowners as soon as the airport was re-opened.
But Bougainville's deputy administrator, Patrick Koles says he's not yet aware of any meeting.
"That has actually not happened and I guess it will be a subject between Sir Peter Barter and our governor of the province. I haven't actually received any word as yet from Sir Peter."
