Air Niugini to reduce fuel surcharge

3:31 pm on 23 September 2014

Papua New Guinea's national airline says it will reduce its fuel surcharge for domestic and international routes effective immediately.

Air Niugini's CEO, Simon Foo, told the PNG Post Courier the decrease is due to a drop in fuel prices on the world market and also the current exchange rate.

He said most domestic ports will see a reduction of up to 10 per cent, which means a saving of up to six US dollars per sector.

On the international front, passengers travelling to Australian cities Cairns, Brisbane and Sydney, the Solomon Islands capital Honiara, Hong Kong and Nadi in Fiji will see a reduction of up to 20 percent.

Mr Foo said they could now save up to 25 US dollars per sector.
