In Papua New Guinea, the price watchdog Independent Consumer and Competition Commission or ICCC has extended flag carrier Air Niugini's code share arrangement with Qantas.

The National newspaper says the conditional authorisation to code share with Qantas for two and a half years will see Air Niugini and Qantas continue the arrangement for a total of four and a half years.

This was announced last Friday by ICCC Commissioner and chief executive officer, Thomas Abe, after ICCC's review into the code share arrangement between the two airline companies.
