Same-day return Cairns flights
Air Niugini has adjusted its schedule between Port Moresby and
Cairns to give business travellers from North Queensland the option of a same-day return trip on Fridays.
An additional benefit of the new timetable is that passengers from Cairns will be able to make direct same-day connections via Port Moresby to Honiara (Solomon Islands) and Nadi (Fiji).
Air Niugini is the first overseas airline to service Cairns, and these latest developments demonstrate the airline’s long-term commitment to the Cairns region, says Air Niugini’s managing director, Alan Milne.
The new service on Fridays (PX091) departs Cairns at
6.30am and arrives in Port Moresby at 7.55am. The return flight (PX098) departs Port Moresby at 5pm and arrives in Cairns at 6.25pm, allowing passengers a full day in Port Moresby for meetings and other business.
The new PX091 service on Friday mornings gives passengers the opportunity to connect from Cairns to Honiara on Fridays and from Cairns to Nadi on Saturdays – both via Port Moresby.
In the opposite direction, same-day connections via Port Moresby are available from Honiara to Cairns, and from Nadi to Cairns.
