PNG Airline Air Niugini keeps Boeing order despite 737 crash

Papua New Guinea Airline Air Niugini will still take delivery of four Boeing 737 Max 8s it has ordered despite two recent major air crashes involving this type of aircraft, says managing director Alan Milne.

Two of the planes will be delivered next year and the other two in 2021. These are the same Boeing aircraft that, in less than six months, have been involved in two fatal air crashes with hundreds of people killed.

Air Niugini’s Boeing 737 which crashed into the sea off Chuuk Airport, Federated States of Micronesia, in September last year resulting in the death of one person, was not a Max 8.

“We have full confidence in the Boeing product and we look forward to introducing these new aircraft into our fleet,” Milne said.

“As investigations are continuing for both accidents, we cannot comment on the cause.

“However, we will ensure any findings or recommendations are incorporated prior to delivery of our aircraft,” he said.
