The National – Thursday, December 16, 2010

AIRLINES PNG has announced an extension of its code share arrangement with Australian Pacific Blues Airlines until March 31, 2012.
Since November 2008, Airlines PNG has code shared on four weekly services operated by Pacific Blue between Port Moresby and Brisbane in each direction.
The original code share arrangement was scheduled to expire late next year but has now been extended as part of a number of revisions to the existing arrangements.
Chief commercial officer Scott Roworth said the extension would ensure Airlines PNG customers have continued access to Pacific Blue’s services as both carriers maintained  a competitive presence on the route.
Pacific Blue is part of the Virgin Blue Group of Airlines which is Australia’s second largest carrier.
