Flying in PNG

Papua New Guinea relies on air transport probably more than any other county in the world and its rugged terrain extending from its coastal areas to its highlands (with mountains rising up to over 14,000 feet) and rapidly changing tropical weather patterns, make for a challenging aviation environment. These extremely demanding flying conditions also require a professional team attitude by PNG Air for safe, successful and cost-effective long-term performance.

A depth of PNG experience in Pilots, Engineer, Traffic and Operations staff is essential for the smooth running of an aviation network almost devoid of the navigation aids accepted as a matter of course in more developed countries.

As a result PNG Air’s fleet has been fitted with high-end GPS systems, Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning Systems (EGPWS) and has satellite tracking capabilities, all of which enhance both safety and efficiency of operations.
