Air Niugini has announced the re-introduction of its 40 percent airfare this year as part of the airline’s 40th anniversary.
ANG’s General Manager-Commercial, Dominic Kaumu in a news conference today said the 40 percent fare is readily available on both domestic and international routes and urged Papua New Guineans to take advantage of the cheap fare.
He said “ It is Air Niugini’s way of saying thank you to our people who have been supportive of Air Niugini in its 40 years of operations. The airline will continue to make this fare available throughout the year and we encourage our people to take advantage of this huge discount.”
Although, the official reintroduction of the 40 percent was only made today, Mr Kaumu said the fare was implemented on 01st February this year. Since then, 21 000 seats have been sold so far.
The 40 percent fare was first implemented in September last year to coincide with Air Niugini’s 40th anniversary on 01st November 2013. Between 01st September and 30th November 2013, Air Niugini sold up to 64,000 seats on forty percent fare.
