New boss for Link PNG
Air Niugini has appointed Bruce Alabaster (pictured) as the new general manager of its subsidiary company, Link PNG. The chairman of Air Niugini and Link PNG, Sir Frederick Reiher, says the board and management are confident Alabaster will take the airline forward in its second year of operation.
Alabaster has taken over from Captain Daniel Wanma.
He vacated the job with commendation by the Link PNG board for his contribution in setting up the company on a sound footing and a profitable first-year result.
Wanma has been assigned to a similar role within the Air Niugini group.
Alabaster has previously been in management roles with Airlines PNG (now PNG Air), Jetconnect and Air New Zealand. He has also clocked 8000 hours as a pilot. ■
