Cassidy International Airport (IATA code: CXI, ICAO code: PLCH) was the only airport in the Kiribati part of the Line Islands with an IATA or ICAO code until 2018. It is an airport located north of Banana, a settlement on Kiritimati (pronounced Christmas) island in Kiribati. The airport is at an elevation of 5 ft (1.5m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 08/26 with an asphalt surface measuring 2,103 by 30 metres (6,900 ft × 98 ft).
The airport is served by Fiji Airways from Nadi, Fiji and Honolulu, United States, but not during the COVID-19 pandemic and closure of international borders. Since neither Air Kiribati nor Coral Sun Airways owns aircraft capable of flying between Kiritimati and the Gilbert Islands, where all other operational airports in Kiribati are located, there are no domestic flights from there to or from Kiritimati, but only domestic flights between the three main Line Islands.
