​PX to invest in high maintenance facility

CEO Simon Foo announced during the Australia-PNG Business Council Forum in Port Moresby that the initiative will see more jobs, build capacity of aircraft engineers and retain foreign exchange in the country.

He said currently all high maintenance are done overseas.

“Currently we do our Dash 8 in Cairns, Fokker airplanes in Singapore, and the Boeing in China.

“The board will be investing in an MRO facility which will mean that we in Papua New Guinea can service our own planes in the country,” Foo said.
