Paradise - - Contents -

AirNi­ug­ini has ap­pointed its first fe­male gen­eral man­ager. Bonai Wala has taken up the po­si­tion of GM in prop­er­ties and fa­cil­i­ties, one of the air­line’s new sub­sidiaries.

She has worked with Air Ni­ug­ini for 24 years in sev­eral ca­pac­i­ties, in­clud­ing fi­nance and hu­man re­sources. She was the hu­man re­sources man­ager prior to this ap­point­ment.

Air Ni­ug­ini chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Si­mon Foo, says the ap­point­ment is based on merit, not gen­der. He added that Air Ni­ug­ini con­tin­ues to pro­mote gen­der equal­ity in the work­place. The air­line has a num­ber of fe­males in top po­si­tions, in­clud­ing de­part­ment man­agers.
