PX audit team to assess Vanuatu airport runway

Air Niugini's scheduled flight to Vanuatu this week will operate despite fears of a deteriorating runway at it's continuing international airport.

The flight will also carry an audit and safety team who will assess the condition of the runway and report back to management for further deliberation and action.

General Manager, Marketing, Dominic Kaumu said the audit team will report back Tuesday.

Last week, Qantas suspended their codeshare with Air Vanuatu effective immediately due to concerns about the country’s international runway at the Bauerfield International Airport.

Air New Zealand has also suspended all flights to Vanuatu.
