TOURISM in Papua New Guinea will be boosted by the inauguration of direct Air Niugini flights between Brisbane and two of PNG’s hubs for travellers.
PNG planning minister Charles Abel has announced that cabinet has approved direct flights to Brisbane from Gurney (Milne Bay) and Kagamuga (Western Highlands) airports. “I want Air Niugini’s F70 to do the international run and Link PNG to pick up at Losuia, Popondetta and Tokua airports,” Mr Abel said.
Air Niugini will have a flight from Brisbane, Gurney, Port Moresby and back to Brisbane and another from Brisbane to Mt Hagen and also serving Wewak, Madang, Mendi and Goroka.
“Cabinet endorsed direct flights from Brisbane to Gurney and Brisbane to Hagen when their new terminal is completed,” Mr Abel said. He told PNG Loop said the flights will be supported by a visa on arrival facility for Australian tourists.
