Air Niugini has just announced that it will cancel all its domestic flight services until further notice, as of midnight tonight.
This unfortunate decision has been necessitated by the recent imposition of jet fuel restrictions by Puma Energy.
Air Niugini sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience this disruption may cause to passengers, travel partners, and stakeholders, stating that the situation imposed by Puma Energy is beyond the control of Air Niugini.
The airline’s primary concern remains the safety and well-being of its customers and crew, and the decision to cancel flights has been taken to ensure that safety standards are upheld considering the fuel supply constraints.
The airline is actively engaging in discussions with Puma Energy and other relevant stakeholders to urgently address the fuel supply issues and find a swift resolution.
Air Niugini advises customers who have already purchased tickets to contact their nearest Air Niugini ticket office, Air Niugini Customer Call Centre, or local travel agent, for further information on travel. Customers should also ensure that their contact information is made available at the time of booking to ensure Air Niugini bulletins are received.
Information can also be obtained from the company’s Facebook page and website www.airniugini.com.pg.
However, Air Niugini advises that international services will not be affected.
Air Niugini extends its sincere appreciation for the continued support of its passengers and partners, and remains committed to delivering safe, reliable, air transport services across Papua New Guinea and beyond.
