Fly when and where you want with Air Niugini charters
Our charter flights give you the freedom to travel when, where and with whom you choose. Available to individuals, groups of people and companies, this service is ideal if you prefer the convenience and security of travelling privately by air to your destination.
Types of charters
General passenger & freight charter
Need to get to a business meeting, wedding or funeral? View a property on an island? Deliver aid to a remote area? We depart when you want and get you there and back safely and on time. Our aircraft can cater for freight only charter, passenger only charter or a combination of both.
PNG special event charters
There are many special events throughout the year in areas of Papua New Guinea that can only be accessed by private aircraft. So if you want to see a provincial cultural show, canoe festival, national mask festival or any of the other local traditions, we’ll take you to the heart of the action and give you a taste of the real Papua New Guinea.
Air Niugini specialise in local and state government charter flights – transporting government staff to meetings, political party conferences and inaugural ceremonies throughout Papua New Guinea.
Company and mining charters
We are available for any company or mining charters throughout Papua New Guinea. Some of the companies we already serve include Oil Search, Morobe Mining Joint Venture and Talisman. Charter flights can be arranged to suit your company’s schedule.
Ready when you are
With approval to fly to most domestic airports in Papua New Guinea, remote aerodromes throughout the Pacific and many international destinations, we can take you where you want to go at short notice, seven days a week.
A well-equipped fleet
The Air Niugini fleet includes large aircraft like the Boeing 767 for long range trans-pacific travel and Dash 8 aircraft for flying to small airstrips – which means we can tailor your trip to suit your budget and freight or passenger requirements.
You’re in safe hands
Our multi-engine, instrument-rated pilots are specifically trained to navigate the wild terrain and remote areas of Papua New Guinea. They are tested by independent experts every year and kept up to date with the latest navigation tools.
In addition to their flying expertise, our pilots can also provide you with a wealth of knowledge about the local areas you will be visiting. They are supported by our very capable ground crew who keep our ground operations running efficiently.
Meeting internationally recognised safety standards
Air Niugini works closely with local and international regulators to ensure the safety of our crew and passengers.
