Port Moresby/Sydney, March 2, 2022: PNG Air, the Port Moresby-based carrier, has appointed AirlinePros as its General Sales Agent in Australia. Through the partnership, AirlinePros will provide a robust range of sales and marketing activities across Australia for PNG Air, which currently flies to over 22 destinations in Papua New Guinea. This will also help to extend the airline’s reach across the Pacific and will give flyers a whole range of services, better value, more options and destinations when travelling in Papua New Guinea.

“We are delighted to announce this partnership,” said Simon C. Pitt, Chief Commercial Officer, PNG Air. “AirlinePros is our first international GSA, and we are absolutely certain that this will give a much-needed boost to our sales and marketing efforts beyond Papua New Guinea.”

Achma Asokan Foster, CEO AirlinePros, said the company was proud to be representing the airline in the Australian market to start and to be followed in other parts of the world. “It is great to introduce the more than one thousand cultural groups that exist in Papua New Guinea, and their awesome diversity. Each group has created its own expressive forms in art, dance, costumes, singing, music, architecture and much more. PNG Air has built a great brand to showcase each of these aspects of their country and we at AirlinePros are happy to be facilitating that.”

“As the borders are opening, travel is slowly but steadily returning to normal,” said Patricio Aylwin, Regional Managing Partner, AirlinePros, Australia. “Exciting times lie ahead, and we are looking forward to extending our full support to growing PNG Air’s network in the region.”
