Air Niugini would like to advise customers that the Australian Government has extended the suspension of international arrivals into Cairns until at least the 30th June. This is in order to manage the risk of arriving passengers subsequently testing positive for COVID-19 during their stay in quarantine facilities.

For the period 19th – 30th June flights from PNG to Cairns have therefore had to be cancelled. Passengers holding tickets for Cairns flights over this period should contact Air Niugini or your travel agent for rebooking options.

Air Niugini continues to operate six services a week to Brisbane, and a weekly service to Sydney.

Air Niugini regrets the inconvenience caused and appreciates our customers’ patience and understanding while we manage our way through these latest border restrictions.
