Air Niugini has announced the arrival of its third Boeing 737 aircraft into Port Moresby on Sunday 12 May 2024.

 Acting Chief Executive Officer, Mr Gary Seddon said the Air Niugini fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft will support the domestic and international operations while progress is made toward the introduction of the new Airbus A220 aircraft from late 2025.

Carrying the registration P2-PXB (Bravo), the new addition has a total of 162 seats: 12 business and 150 economy class.

 The 737s are replacing Fokker aircraft operations (where possible) as Air Niugini introduces greater capacity on domestic trunk routes, similar to the very popular Lae Express.

“The Fokker jet aircraft have done a tremendous job over the decades; safely and reliably meeting our air transport needs.

The new Airbus A220s will replace the retiring Fokkers and become the backbone to Air Niugini’s fleet. In the meantime, our Boeing 737s provide excellent reliability, comfort and safety.”

Mr Seddon thanked Air Niugini’s valued customers for their continued support and loyalty. “ We look forward to the near future when the challenges of jet fuel and airport infrastructure are behind us. We can focus on expanding our network, providing more value for money, and greater reliability in the schedule.” Mr Seddon concluded.
