Air Niugini flights to Madang and Wewak

January 16, 2021

Air Niugini would like to inform the travelling public that the runway lengths at Madang and Wewak airports will be temporarily shortened by the National Airports Corporation (NAC). This is to allow for runway maintenance and upgrading works at both airports.

The reduced runway length at Madang commences this month, and at Wewak from March. This runway works at both airports are expected to last until November, depending on weather conditions.

As a result of the above, Air Niugini flights to and from Madang and Wewak will progressively be rescheduled onto Q400 and Dash-8 turboprop aircraft, operated by our subsidiary company Link PNG.

Air Niugini regrets the inconvenience to the travelling public, however, the safety of operations remains our primary concern.

We look forward to resuming our Fokker jet services to Madang and Wewak once the runway maintenance is completed.

Air Niugini and Link PNG continue to operate with strict health and safety measures in place including temperature testing of all passengers, and providing face masks and hand sanitizer to ensure your air travel is safe.
