November 27, 2023
Air Niugini wishes to advise its valued customers that the airline has resumed Fokker jet services to Kagamuga airport, Mount Hagen today, Monday 27th November.
Jet operations to Mount Hagen were suspended in late September to allow the National Airports Corporation (NAC) to carry out urgent maintenance works on the airport runway. During the period of the runway repairs, all Air Niugini flights to Hagen were downgraded to Dash 8 operations.
Air Niuginiâ€™s Acting Chief Executive Officer, Â Mr Gary Seddon said â€śMount Hagen is the major airport serving the Highlands region and is of vital importance to the economy and community. We are pleased that the runway maintenance has been completed and we are now able to resume operations with larger jet aircraft in time for the busy Christmas peak periodâ€ť.
