Air­line ap­points ru­ral agents

Paradise - - Contents -

Air Ni­ug­ini has ap­pointed four ru­ral sales agents to deal with cus­tomers in un­der-ser­viced ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties who do not have di­rect ac­cess to the air­line’s ser­vices.

The agents are busi­ness­men and women in their com­mu­ni­ties and are en­dorsed, sup­ported and trained by Air Ni­ug­ini.

The four agents ap­pointed so far are in Maprik in East Sepik Prov­ince, Kainantu in the East­ern High­lands, and Kud­jip and Banz in Ji­waka.

The Maprik agent is lo­cated at the Unidomet Busi­ness Con­sul­tancy premises, the Kainantu agent at Jerutifa Ser­vices Lim­ited, the Kud­jip agent at Kingku Travel and the Banz agent at Topoinz Lim­ited.

Six more agents will be ap­pointed across the coun­try soon.

Air Ni­ug­ini’s gen­eral man­ager com­mer­cial ser­vices, Do­minic Kaumu, says that the ini­tia­tive is a part of the air­line’s com­mit­ment to ser­vice ru­ral pop­u­la­tions. He says the air­line un­der­stands the chal­lenges peo­ple face in ru­ral ar­eas to ac­cess air­line ser­vices.

“With lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion, peo­ple in ru­ral ar­eas do not have to travel long dis­tances at sig­nif­i­cant costs to get to a sales of­fice to pur­chase Air Ni­ug­ini tick­ets or ser­vices. They can ac­cess these ser­vices right where they are.” ■
