Air Niugini took delivery of its second retrofit aircraft (P2-PXV) in Port Moresby this morning (Monday 09th September 2013) representing the most modernized fleet and offering a whole new travel experience.
This was the second aircraft after P2-PXW(Whiskey) in July this year. The retrofit of the Boeing aircraft ensures a much higher standard and comfort for customers travelling on Air Niugini Bird Of Paradise services and to prepare our National Airline for competition.
Changes and improvements have been made to the aircraft’s interior cabin, the seating arrangement and the in-flight entertainment system.
Passengers in business class now have spacious leg room and seats where they can now sleep with ease, comfort and in privacy. Inseat screens have been installed in both the business and economy class seats for all passengers, offering movies in early genre, premier classics, family classics, TV documentaries, games, music and other applications. Similar to Whiskey, Victor has a total 188 seats, 28 business and 160 economy class seats.
Air Niugini is committed to upgrading all aircraft interior and will be rolling out the retrofit program across its international Boeing fleet to ensure the same standard is maintained through out all its fleet.
Air Niugini cabin crew have been specially trained to use the facilities on board the retrofit aircraft.
The retrofitting program will also lift Air Niugini and Papua New Guinea standards in air travel and Air Niugini as the National airline is proud to be taking the lead in doing so.
