Two newborn babies died right after birth at the West coast of the island of Santo due to no transportation to transport mothers to seek help in the hospital quickly.

Chief Frank Newman told VBTC News that the people want earnestly for Latsmoli airport on the West Coast of Santo to reopen again so it can provide services to people especially in times of emergency.

VBTC News understands through the office of the Air Vanuatu that the airline stopped its flights there after a plane crash many years past and until today planes no longer go to Latmoli airport.
