HPAPUA New Guinea’s locally owned airline, Travel Air has extended its flight to the Highlands and is moving forward to compete with Air Niugini and Airlines PNG in the region.
The recently introduced airline company based in Madang has opened its office in Mount Hagen, and its maiden flight will be on Sunday January 22.
The inclusion of services by Travel Air in the region will be of great relief for the people of the seven highlands provinces who use Mount Hagen airport as the main airline port.
The marketing executive Christine Nege was very happy to see people from the region came forward to ask questions and show their excitement and appreciation during the awareness conducted by the company in Mount Hagen yesterday.
“We are pleased to see many people came forward to ask us when the first flight of the airline would be and were eager to know more about Travel Air or Mangi Lo Ples. The people are friendly and which makes us feel comfortable to do business in the region,” Ms Nege said.
She said this week the promotional team are in Western Highlands capital to do awareness and promoting the airline before the first flight touches down at Kagamuga Airport.
Ms Nege said the flights are more affordable and would be much more helpful to the majority of the rural population. “Our flights are more affordable for the majority of the population and looking forward to increase the flights in a week if the demand increases. There will be six flights to and from Kagamuga via other centres in a week,” Ms Nege said. She said ticket for Mount Hagen to Port Moresby would cost K333 and Mount Hagen to Lae is K240.
Travel Air already has flights to the New Guinea Islands.
