New Port Moresby to Chuuk and Ponpei air service on Air Niugini


Micronesia will be served by Air Niugini as of December. Air Niugini Limited is the national airline of Papua New Guinea, based in Air Niugini House on the property of Jacksons International Airport, Port Moresby.

It will be the third airline to service Chuuk and Ponpei. This may be good news for recent ambition to expand tourism in Micronesia. It may also get the region less dependent on United Airlines Island hopper service from Honolulu to Guam.

The airline will operate Fokker 70 aircraft with following routing.
