RMI Ports Authority

Pacific Aviation Directors Workshop

April 5-7, 2005

Radisson Prince Kuhio Hotel, Honolulu, HI


RMIPA Background

  • RMI Ports Authority (RMIPA) Act of 2003 passed into law on September 19, 2003

  • The purpose of the Act is to consolidate the Marshall Islands Port Authority and Marshall Islands Airport Authority into a single Ports Authority responsible for the maintenance and operation of the airport in Majuro and the ports in Ebeye, Jaluit and Majuro

  • RMIPA did not become fully functional until October of 2004


Mission Statement

  • To contribute to the economic and social development of the Republic of the Marshall Islands by establishing, maintaining and managing efficient commercial airport and seaport facilities


Composition of RMIPA Board

  • The Board of Directors consists of 7 members, all of whom are appointed by the Cabinet

  • The Cabinet designates one of the members as Chairman of the Board

  • The Minister of Transportation & Communication is not a member of the Board but may give directions to the Board on the general policies to be adopted by RMIPA


Staff of RMIPA

  • The day-to-day administration and operation of the RMIPA rests with the Director, who is selected by the Board

  • The Director is assisted by six departmental managers each responsible for the airport, harbors, finance, maintenance, security, and ARFF

  • There are 54 full-time employees; about 50% are security officers


Staff of RMIPA

  • 10 of the security officers are cross-trained in aircraft rescue and fire fighting

  • 3 were recently certified after undergoing a month-long training in basic firefighting under the auspices of the Commonwealth Ports Authority

  • RMIPA plans to train additional security staff in aircraft rescue and fire fighting next year


ARFF Staff


Cabin Security Inspections

  • Mandated more than a year ago by TSA on US passenger flights servicing the Micronesian region

  • The security directive requires that the airline conducts cabin security inspections at all international airports

  • To do this, all passengers are asked to deplane


Cabin Security Inspections

  • What has changed since last year?

    • At each airport (except Kwajalein) only one side of the aircraft is required to deplane; this is done randomly

    • When it rains, all passengers remain on board while cabin inspections are carried out

    • Business class passengers are not required to deplane
