TAHITI EYES MAJOR AIRPORT UPGRADE

MELBOURNE, Australia (Radio Australia, Nov. 4) - A preliminary study on rebuilding Tahiti's International Airport has been presented in Paris to French Polynesia's President, Gaston Flosse.

A final report is due at the end of December.

International Paris Airport Engineering is considering what should happen with Tahiti's airport facilities when ownership is transferred from the French State to the territory.

French Polynesia's government favors a complete reorganization, to handle larger aircraft.

The engineers favor moving and merging international airport operations with the domestic facilities handling Air Tahiti.
