Quoin Hill Airport

Quoin Hill Airport was an airport in North Efate, in Vanuatu. The airstrip was used during World War II but is no longer usable as an airstrip. Investigations took place in the late 1980s as to whether Quoin Hill could be used as an alternate for Bauerfield International Airport but this never came to fruition.
