PX's Tuesday special saver has sparked a growing interest in domestic travel.
21 December 2020
PAPUA New Guinea’s national flag carrier, Air Niugini, is offering incredible discounts every Tuesday for domestic travelers.
According to a November 2020 Air Niugini media release, the specials are published at 0900 hours every Tuesday. Air Niugini email subscribers and Facebook followers are the first to be alerted. Fares have gone as low as PGK19 with a limited travel window, terms and conditions apply. See the Air Niugini Facebook page and the Air Niugini latest offers page.
The Tuesday special saver has sparked a massive interest in domestic travel, especially with the lingering restrictions to international inbound travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many PNG residents have taken advantage of the slashed prices and visited places in PNG that would have been too expensive to travel to on a normal fare.
The Tourism Promotion Authority CEO Mr. Eric Mossman Uvovo commended Air Niugini for its Tuesday Specials and discounted fares. “These airfare discounts come at a critical time when our tourism industry is struggling to fill rooms, book seats and sell tours,” he said. He further encouraged more PNG residents to take advantage of the reduced fares and explore the country while the opportunity was around.
Local tour operators like Madapai Tours, in East New Britain, have capitalized on the rise in domestic travel due to Air Niugini’s discounted airfares, and is heavily promoting affordable tour packages that can be enjoyed by local and expatriate residents.
In the land of ‘A Million Different Journeys’ Papua New Guinea is proving to be an ideal place for local travelers.
