Weather delays Air Niugini flight to Honiara

Continuous heavy rains and flooding in Solomon Island forced Air Niugini to delay its flight to Honiara for the next 24 hours.

PX 082 was cancelled this morning around 10 am after receiving information from Honiara that passengers and airport handling staff were unable to reach the airport at Honiara’s Henderson International Airport.

The flight has been rescheduled for a 10 am departure on Wednesday with the return flight to be deferred by 24 hours to Thursday.

Air Niugini says it regrets the inconvenience caused and stresses the situation is outside the airline’s control and the safety of customers and staff is always a first priority.
