Air Vanuatu CEO Derek Nice made the announcement on a local radio station.

Currently the airline has only one aircraft for its international route.

The Daily Post newspaper reports the latest announcement is part of Prime Minister Charlot Salwai's Shared Vision 2030 for Aviation and Tourism.

It also marks the first time the company has announced a major development since it brought domestic carrier Vanair under its wing some years ago.
