Travel Requirements into Mount Hagen, Western Highlands Province

PNG Air wishes to advise our customers and the travelling public of the new travel requirements into Mount Hagen, Western Highlands Province, effective from 18th October 2021.
These requirements are provided by the Western Highlands Provincial Health Authority (WHPHA) and the Provincial Controller’s Office. To maintain the safety and well-being of our employees, flight crew and passengers, PNG Air is fully compliant with these requirements.
A medical surveillance team will be stationed at Kagamuga Airport, and will enforce the following:
• Passengers arriving or departing the Western Highlands must comply with the requirement to be screened.
• Passengers who portray signs or symptoms of Covid-19 will be required to take a Rapid Diagnostic Testing (RDT).
• Those returning a positive test will be subject to quarantine as deemed appropriate by the WHPHA, and this will be at the cost of the passenger.
Due to local curfews, PNG Air Sales Offices in Mt. Hagen Town and Airport will operate only from 8 am to 2 pm only. Customers can utilize our website for bookings.
When purchasing tickets at any PNG Air or Post PNG sales offices, passengers are still required to fill out an Air Passenger Travel Form (APTF), and the Health Declaration Form upon arrival.
Passengers are required to continue the wearing of face masks, observe social distancing rules and sanitise or wash their hands regularly.
