How To Get Free Tickets From Air Niugini
July 5, 2018
Organize a fully paid up group of fifteen people or more for return travel on any Air Niugini flight and you “earn” a free return ticket for yourself. Do this multiple times and earn more free tickets.
This is part of the current promotion called Ab-Free (Absolutely –free) ticket being carried out jointly by Air Niugini and its subsidiary companies, Link PNG and Business Travel Centre (BTC).
BTC’s General Manager Mr Floyd Smith who is co-coordinating the promotion said the initiative involves Air Niugini’s domestic and international sectors and is targeting first time travellers travelling for leisure, church activities, island breaks or any activity that conjures fun, recreation and relaxation as a group.
Mr Smith said, “We will offer the best available group fare and as long as a minimum of 15 adults travel. The Group Travel Organizer (GTO) will receive an absolutely free return ticket from Air Niugini, with no extra charges. Furthermore, the GTO can either travel with the group or by themselves to an alternative Air Niugini destination however the travel status will vary and these details will be communicated to the GTO by the Travel Officer handling the booking. A group with 30 people or more will earn the GTO two free tickets. Should the group number fall below 15, the Ab-Free Return Ticket will not be awarded. “
“Once a group of 15 or more travellers are confirmed at the time of booking, a 10 percent non-refundable deposit is required with balance of payment made within 30 days from departure date. This promotion does not include travel for funeral groups, contra groups, travel for known events such as National Sporting Titles or codeshare flights.”
The GTO must be 18 years or above and should liaise directly with BTC, Air Niugini Travel Centre or their preferred Travel Agent.
Mr Smith said the GTO must ensure that all travellers’ documents are valid, passports have a minimum of 6 months to expiry and appropriate visas for international travel are in order.
“The GTO is responsible for collecting all funds and depositing at BTC, Air Niugini or their Travel Agent and will then distribute the group tickets once all finalized.
An alternate GTO may also be appointed to act in the absence of the initial GTO organizing the trip. These details are to be provided in writing to the booking office as to avoid dealing with multiple persons”, Mr Smith said.
The ‘Ab-Free’ ticket promotion commenced on 30 June 2018 and will continue until mid-2019.
