Combi flights

Successful airlifting of WNB exam papers

Last week saw a successful airlifting of examination papers for grades 10 and 12 to West New Britain Province.

Air Niugini Chief Executive Officer Simon Foo said the use of the DHC-8 Combi aircraft allows the airline to move larger amounts of cargo at one time, and also to uplift bulky cargo that would not otherwise fit on other commercial flights.

“Whilst our Fokker aircraft are a great cargo solution in that they can carry over one ton of cargo as well as 100 passengers, the ‘Combi’ flights are proving to be an excellent addition to our capability,” Foo said.
