TO follow the recent successes announced by Airlines PNG comes news of an expansion of their network to become effective as of June 14.
The strong financial result for last year and the subsequent fleet investment in additional aircraft has seen Madang added into the network plus additional capacity and frequency to key highlands areas.
Madang will now benefit from daily flights from Lae plus connection through to Port Moresby to the international sectors.
This schedule comes as a result of requests from local businesses and individuals looking for support for their commercial activities.
Chief executive officer of APNG Gary Toomey said daily Madang services would offer Madang residents the opportunity to be connected to the rest of PNG at times which suit their needs.
“This vibrant and progressive community needs greater access to other markets than has previously been provided to them and we are confident that the region will become stronger as a result of this initiative,” Toomey said.
