Air Niugini defers Shangai-direct fight
4:44 pm GMT+12, 22/10/2018, Papua New Guinea

In light of the busy APEC and the usual holiday and Christmas season, and expected increased demand on domestic and existing international routes, Air Niugini has decided to defer its recently announced flights to Shanghai, China.
 
Air Niugini announced last week it would start its maiden flight to the Chinese mainland today, before the deferral was announced Monday.
 
“Our partners and the airline have invested heavily in setting up operations to achieve our goal of opening the Chinese market to Papua New Guinea.
 
“It is our desire to complete this venture at the earliest possible opportunity.
 
“Our industry partners have been briefed of this change and all booked customers are offered a full refund without penalty or reroute via alternative Air Niugini destinations.”
 
It stated it would review the introduction of China flights at a later date, adding its commitment to the Asia Pacific region and growing its services to the neighboring countries.
 
The cancellation of the maiden Shanghai flight will see the huge thriving tourist market of China starved off the opportunity to visit PNG direct.
 
Air Niugini maintained its commitment to ensuring the highest quality, on time service to all passengers and will continuously review its business to improve efficiencies.
