Air Niugini signs China charter flight deal between Shanghai and Port Moresby

AIR Niugini has reached an air services agreement with China to begin tourism charter flights from Shanghai next year.

Airline chairman Sir Frederick Reiher said Air Niugini continued to expand its regional and international services to boost tourism and travel.
He said next month, the airline would operate regular services between Port Moresby and Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia.

It will also increase flight frequencies to Sydney and Manila.

“We need to work with the Government to ensure these services and others under consideration benefit our economy and our tourism industry,” he said.
Meanwhile, Sir Frederick announced Air Niugini’s K111 million investment in a new residential complex next to its head office in Port Moresby.

He said it was one of the steps taken by the airline management to reduce operating costs and make savings beyond its re-fleeting programme.
