PNG Airline Air Niugini working closely to Hub Asian Traffic

As part of its broad strategy to consolidate its position in the region in partnership for code share opportunities, Air Niugini will look to work closely with Jacksons International airport to take on traffic from Asia.

Air Niugini managing director Alan Milne made the remarks last month as he outlined plans to work closer with the National Airports Corporation to amplify Jackson’s status as a hub point to the rest of the South Pacific.

“We have got a broad strategy to look at the bigger picture that is a three to five year plan,’’ he said.

“Very difficult for an airline because of the vagaries of the industry, but we need some in place that we can try to deliver to.

“One of the strategies that is working for us at the moment is the hubbing strategy out of Jackson (Airport).”

He said with the Asia the fastest growing region in the world, the movement in and out the Pacific region can be accommodated with PNG’s strategic location.

“So the Asian Traffic into Jacksons and then hubbing onto the South Pacific,’’ he said.

“Far easy, far shorter, and far cheaper than doing that through Australia and we are starting to see that traffic start to build.
“But we need to work closer with NAC (National Airports Corporation) to make sure Jackson’s is up to it to handle that transits traffic, that the lounges are adequate, good customer propositioning and that will be built into what our strategy looks like.” Post courier
