Air Niugini will introduce direct Port Moresby to Nadi, Fiji, services effective September 5, 2019.
The new non-stop service will initially operate once weekly and will complement the existing one-stop flight via Honiara, Solomon Islands.
The flying time between Port Moresby and Nadi on the non-stop service is just 4 hours and 50 minutes, saving almost three hours over the current fastest return journey.
The nonstop flights will be operated by Air Niugini’s Boeing 737 aircraft, offering complimentary meals, beverages, and in-flight entertainment for all passengers.
Air Niugini has been flying to Nadi via Honiara since 2007 and currently operates twice a week.
Mr. Alan Milne, Air Niugini Managing Director, said:
“the addition of our non-stop services to Nadi is the logical next step for the airline, and will help to further strengthen trade and business opportunities between the two largest economies in the Pacific”.
