TARAWA, Kiribati (August 9, 2002 – Radio Australia)---After several delays, a sub-regional airline to serve Micronesian countries is expected to get off the ground later this month.

While government authorities in Kiribati have not revealed the precise cause of the delay in beginning passenger and cargo services, it is believed that the plane to be used has been awaiting an air-worthiness certificate.

A senior Kiribati government official, Sam Tiira, said the 66-seater plane will begin flying to Tuvalu, Fiji, Nauru and the Marshall Islands from Kiribati, as soon as the certificate is issued.
