Airline signs deal to outsource sales


AIR Niugini has outsourced its sales office in Kieta, Autonomous Region of Bougainville to a travel agency – the third to be outsourced so far.
The airline’s general manager customers and markets Dominic Kaumu and the manageress of Poonang Travel Agency Pamela Daiona signed an agreement in Kieta last Wednesday to seal the arrangement.
Kaumu said ANG would continue to outsource ticket sales and airport services at selected domestic centres as part of its effort to streamline operations.
But its major domestic ports would not be affected.
“While we endeavour to streamline operations, it is also the airline’s way of giving back to the community and we are confident of the people that we appoint to continue the sales and ticketing work for Air Niugini. Poonang Travel Agency is no exception.”
Kaumu said it was the airline’s way of supporting and promoting tourism in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville – and in this case Arawa – by partnering with a local who is already in the tourism industry to continue the airline ticketing responsibility.
