Air Niugini wishes to advise the travelling public that effective from 06th August 2022 the airline will resume direct services to Honiara, Solomon Islands, and Nadi, Fiji.
The resumption of services has been made possible by the relaxing of border restrictions in the two countries, and flights will initially operate once a week in each direction.
Air Niugini Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr Bruce Alabaster said “Air Niugini is delighted to be able to resume flights to the Solomon Islands and Fiji following their suspension over two years ago at the start of pandemic when borders were closed. “
