Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru, and formerly known as Pleasant Island is the world’s smallest nation covering only approximately 20,72 square kilometers (8 square miles), smaller than some international airports! The island is also over 321 km (200 miles) from its nearest neighbor – Banaba Island in Kiribati, being a tiny speck of land in the vast South Pacific Ocean.
Nauru International Airport (IATA: INU, ICAO: ANYN) is the sole airport in the Republic of Nauru. The airport currently connects the country to four international passenger destinations, all served by Nauru’s national airline, Nauru Airlines. The airstrip was built during the World War II Japanese occupation of Nauru using forced labor. Operations began in January 1943. After the war, it was converted to a civilian airport.
