PNG Engineers carry out maintenance work on Australian Aircraft

Air Niugini’s inhouse maintenance has just completed work on an Australian Q400 aircraft here in Port Moresby.
This is the second aircraft in the region to undergo in-house maintenance checks by our Engineering team, commencing with Solomon Airline’s Dash 8 aircraft that had heavy maintenance work done in August 2019.

Air Niugini Director Lady Tauvasa said, “The Air Niugini maintenance team is very capable of doing any work presented to them and especially to carry out work for the Australian airline which has the reputation of being the safest airline in the world. For them to allow us, Air Niugini, to work on their aircraft means that they must consider our work to be of the highest standard, which it always is.”

The team comprises of six engineers of which three are already trained and licensed on the Q400 aircraft. They had to submit all their training records to the airline before they were given the approval to work on the aircraft. The three other team members are former cadet trainees and this is a great experience for them to work on an aircraft that’s similar to Link PNG’s latest addition.

She said, “This is another great opportunity for Air Niugini to show the world that we are as good, if not better, than other maintenance organizations at what we do. We have a dedicated team, good facilities and the willingness to handle any task thrown at us.”

“The expansion of service also reflects Air Niugini’s continuous training and successful professional development program for our PNG National staff over the years. This can only be good for Air Niugini but more importantly for Papua New Guinea,” Lady Tauvasa said.
