Air Niugini keen to make Port Moresby, Pacific hub

Air Niugini is determined to make Port Moresby the hub of the Pacific, and its subsidiary firm, Link PNG is an integral part of this plan.
This was from Air Niugini’s general manager- customers and markets, Dominic Kaumu during a meeting the airline held with the business community in Madang.
Mr Kaumu was in Madang with Link PNG general manager, Bruce Alabaster to give the business community an update on its general business operations and future plans.
“Link PNG’s vision is very important for the mother company as it feeds passengers from the remote areas, who are picked up by Air Niugini for the main domestic ports and also the overseas leg of travel.
“We are connecting Asia, Australia, PNG and the Pacific from Port Moresby’s Jackson’s International airport. We recently launched services to the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and Townsville, we should commence services to Shanghai, China by March next year.
“We have also increased frequencies to Townsville, Cairns, Singapore, FSM, Manila, Port Villa and Honiara. The operations by our subsidiary company compliments Air Niugini’s vision.”
“We are upgrading seats on our Boeing fleet and enhanced feature on the Fokker 70/100 aircraft to ensure comfort and convenience for our passengers,” Mr Kaumu said.
Meanwhile the private sector representatives were also told Air Niugini is on a planned Customer Service program.
This is to improve services throughout the domestic network including the opening of new executive club lounges and improvement of the current ones.
In terms of flights the business representatives were told, for Madang passengers, there are two Air Niugini and Link PNG flights in a day with connections to and from 53 Air Niugini international destinations in a week.
