Find Transport expertise in Solomon Islands
As an archipelago composed of 922 islands, the Solomon Islands are located along 5 major shipping routes and rely heavily on shipping for transport and cargo. There are two main international ports, a deep-water port at Honiara on the island Guadalcanal and a smaller port at Noro on New Georgia. Both are managed by the Solomon Islands Ports Authority (SIPA) and offer port and overseas cargo handling services. A third international port, located at Yandina on Rennell Island, is shallower with limited services. The international airport is at Henderson Field on Guadalcanal, 13km of Honiara. The airport is served by a few international and domestic airlines and is capable of accommodating Boeing 767s and cargo planes. There are 1,390km of roads in the Solomon Islands, mainly located on the islands of Guadalcanal and Malaita; 2.4 percent of roads are paved, with some 470km of main roads and the rest private rural-access roads. The terrain is mountainous and there is heavy rainfall making road conditions unpredictable. Ferries facilitate transport between the islands.
