Jackson’s airport restrictions during APEC

The international carpark at Jackson’s airport will be temporarily closed from the 12th to 20th November.

National Airports Corporation Managing Director, Richard Yopo, in a statement said it will be temporarily closed as part of the restricted zone for APEC.

The general public is advised to use the domestic airport carpark during this period.

The VIP transit facility, built next to Air Niugini cargo, will also be restricted.

APEC routes in the city will include the Tokarara June Valley road, Independence Drive, Somare Drive and Lawes Road. These roads may be locked down thirty minutes before the motorcade convoy and open straight after for public use.

Restricted land zones also include Ela Beach road, roads in front of the Ela Beach Hotel, Grand Papua and Crowne Plaza hotels and T wharf in town.
