The airport authority, National Airports Corporation, has issued a notice to airmen (NOTAM) advising the temporary closure of the Hoskins aerodrome.
The situation is being monitored on a daily basis and the resumption of flights will depend on the volcanic activity.
Passengers who are traveling to Hoskins are reminded not to travel at this time as you may be stranded in Port Moresby. Should passengers insist to travel, all costs will be at their own expense.
Air Niugini appreciates the traveling public’s understanding on this matter.
