PNG Air has announced that it will begin international services from Mount Hagen to Jayapura in Indonesia in February 2017.
The airline’s CEO Muralee Siva said:
“We are delighted to confirm that approval has been given for PNG Air to begin services to Jayapura.”
“We see opening this route as both giving more options to our passengers and as a boost to PNG’s economic development,” Mr Siva added.
“Since we announced our intention to begin flights to Jayapura interest from our customers has been very strong. Mt Hagen plays an increasingly important role in our network and I’m very pleased to announce both the Jayapura services and that we will shortly be opening a Customer Lounge facility at Mount Hagen,” Mr. Siva said.
PNG Air will introduce its 5th brand new ATR to its domestic network in December 2016. This comes on the back of other customer service initiatives including the redevelopment of the Kiunga terminal and its VIP lounge area, introducing an on-line check-in facility and SMS updates for disrupted flights.
