Deferral of Air Niugini China flight

October 22, 2018

In light of the busy APEC and the usual holiday and Christmas season, and expected increased demand on domestic and existing international routes, Air Niugini has decided to defer its recently announced flights to Shanghai, China.

Air Niugini is committed to ensuring the highest quality, on time service to all passengers and will continuously review its business to improve efficiencies.

Our Partners and the airline have invested heavily in setting up operations to achieve our goal of opening the Chinese market to Papua New Guinea. It is our desire to complete this venture at the earliest possible opportunity. Our Industry partners have been briefed of this change and all booked customers are offered a full refund without penalty or reroute via alternative Air Niugini destinations.

Air Niugini will review the introduction of China flights at a later date.

The company remains committed to the Asia Pacific region and growing its services to our neighboring countries.
