POST COURIER – Papua New Guinea National airline Air Niugini has announced reduction in fuel surcharge for both domestic and international routes-effective from Monday.
The airline chief executirve officer (CEO) Simon Foo said the decrease in fuel surcharge was due to reduction in fuel prices on the world market and also the current exchange rate.
He said most domestic ports will see a reduction of up to 10 per cent of the fuel surcharge component of airfares. “This means passengers travelling within PNG destinations can now save up to K15 per sector,” he said in a statement.
On the international front, passengers travelling to Australian cities Cairns, Brisbane and Sydney, the Solomon Islands’ capital Honiara, Hong Kong and Nadi in Fiji will see a reduction of up to 20 per cent.
Foo said they could now save up to US$25 (K63) per sector.He concluded that the decrease in fuel surcharge also means that passengers travelling on the Tura Half Price fare will enjoy more discounts. The fare came into effect this month.
