Paradise - - Contents -

Air Ni­ug­ini’s In­de­pen­dence flash sale of PGK44 per do­mes­tic sec­tor was a great suc­cess, with 10,395 Pa­pua New Guineans buy­ing tick­ets. “Many who pur­chased tick­ets were or­di­nary Pa­pua New Guineans who couldn’t nor­mally travel,” man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Alan Milne, says.

He says 64 per cent of pas­sen­gers chose the pay-later op­tion, while the rest opted for di­rect pay­ment.

The flash sale was to com­mem­o­rate the coun­try’s 44th in­de­pen­dence an­niver­sary.

At the time of the sale, Milne said: “This is the first time for Air Ni­ug­ini to trial such heav­ily re­duced do­mes­tic airfares and we en­cour­age Pa­pua New Guineans to take ad­van­tage of this ex­cit­ing pro­mo­tion. Seats are lim­ited and will be sold on a first-come first-serve ba­sis.”

Tick­ets bought dur­ing the sale were PGK44 per sec­tor (plus taxes and air­port charges) and were avail­able for flights dur­ing Oc­to­ber.
