Air Niugini - Freedom over the skies of Papua New Guinea

Air Niugini was founded as the National Airline of Papua New Guinea in 1973. This step made it possible to experience the best of the country: from the spectacular Highland regions down to the mighty Sepik River and into the coastal villages that remained virtually unexplored. Demand for Air Niugini flights – the accepted Pidgin English spelling for New Guinea – exceeded all expectations and already in 1975 the steady growth of the modern fleet started. With the fleet grew the network and in 1979 the carrier connected “the Land of Adventure and Excitement” with Asia, Australia, and the U.S. Sales office were opened in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Europe, and the U.S. The success story of Air Niugini continued and it achieved to boost the image of Papua New Guinea as an exotic tourist destination.

Today Air Niugini operates modern and safely maintained Boeing aircrafts for international connections to Asia, Australia, and the Pacific region. Domestic flights, the Solomon Islands, and Fiji are serviced with Fokker, Dash, and DHC planes. The airline offers every enjoyable comfort a traveller expects. At the home base Port MoresbyJackson International Airport, members of the Executive Club get to know the true promise of service in the Air Niugini Lounge. Aboard an Air Niugini aircraft passengers are served delicious food and can chose from a variety of beverages. The in-flight entertainment makes even the longest flight to just a stone’s throw.
