Air Niugini To Raise Fares By 20%

Mon Nov 25, 2002 11:47 am

G'day all,

Air Niugini, national airline of Papua New Guinea, is to raise international airfares by 20% from December 2nd, and domestic airfares by 17% from November 28th, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. This comes in the midst of a failing conomy and a falling currency.

Full report at http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2002/11/25/1038173679998.html

Air Niugini operates international flights with a Boeing 767-300, ZK-NCE, leased from Air New Zealand, and domestic flights with F28s and Dash-8s (I don't know numbers)
