MAJURO, Marshall Islands — Air Marshall Islands announced it will resume international air service to Tarawa, Kiribati with a regular weekly flight beginning April 13.
The development reflects the government’s national air carrier getting its Dash-8 aircraft back into operation after more than five months on the ground. The 35-seat plane was grounded last October after an inspection discovered serious corrosion in parts of the fuselage — an ongoing challenge of operating planes in the salt air environment of Pacific atolls.
