The PNG Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA PNG) this morning (Monday 05th September) has approved the resumption of flights to both Lae/Nadzab and Kiunga airports, allowing airlines to operate flights again to the two airports, effective today.
CASA PNG had closed both airports due to outstanding regulatory issues by the National Airports Corporation. These issues however are now addressed, allowing the airlines to resume flights.
Air Niugini customers are advised to revalidate their travel to the next available flight. Lae flights resume after lunch today (PX 104 ) while Kiunga resumes tomorrow (Tuesday 06th Sept).
Air Niugini regrets the inconvenience caused, however the situation is beyond the airline’s control. Safety is always of paramount importance in their operations.
