Link PNG resumes flights to Tari and Popondetta

Link PNG wishes to advise its valued customers that the airline will resume operations to Girua airport, Popondetta tomorrow(Tuesday 09th Feb) following reports that temporary bridges are being built to link the town and the airport

The airline will operate additional services to cater for the backlog of passengers since the Popondetta flights were suspended last week.

Several bridges in Popondetta were damaged during heavy rains and floods last week, resulting in suspension of flights as people had difficulty getting to the airport.


As a temporary measure, it’s understood a local construction company is working on the bridges by using planks and timbers to connect bridges and allow vehicles to cross.

Meanwhile, Link PNG’s Tari service resumed today(Monday 08th Feb) following the suspension of flights last Wednesday as a result of tribal flights in the area.  PX 864 departed Port Moresby for Tari at 08: 56am today and returned at 12:48pm.

The local Police have assured that the situation is under control. Link PNG continues to closely monitor flights on a daily basis.

Link PNG is a subsidiary company of Air Niugini Limited.
