Lucifer International Airport (IATA: LIA, ICAO: PYLI), also known as Lucifer International, is the largest and busiest airport in Pama Motu, located in the Lucifer Borough, on the southeastern tip of the Palm Atoll. It is the primary and only airport serving the Taulaga Paman Metropolitan Area. It is operated by FlyLucifer and regulated by the NDA (National Department of Aviation).

Lucifer International Airport was in 2016 the busiest airport in the North Pacific Ocean by the number of takeoffs and landings and passengers. It has two runways used to maximum capacity as of 2016 with planes entering and leaving every 1 minute. The airport was voted the busiest by the Palm Islands Aviation Magazine but was however rated "Outstanding" in terms of cleanliness. Lucifer International Airport is a common airport for emergency landings for planes crossing the Pacific ocean.

History

Lucifer International Airport was constructed in 1944 as an airfield for infrequent international civilian travel between Pama Motu and John Rogers Airport (now Daniel K. Inouye International Airport). As the Government of the Palm Islands pushed tourism to Taulaga Pama in the 1970's a civilian airport was needed. The small airport known today as Lucifer International airport was small, had only one runway and was not built for frequent civilian flight. Therefore in 1971, the airport was reconstructed, now with capacity for 25,000,000 passengers per year. In 1997 the airport had again reached its maximum security. Therefore, the Government of the Palm Islands renovated the whole airport adding 6 more terminals, another runway, constructed a new terminal shuttle train and redesigned the airport from a "minimalistic" style to a "neo futuristic" style.
