PX airlifts Fiji relief supplies

Air Niugini yesterday uplifted part of the total 4.5 tonnes of relief supplies donated by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) from Port Moresby to Fiji, for the people affected by Cyclone Winston.

The relief supplies in 225 boxes containing mattresses, tents and plastic rolls were donated by JICA in Singapore. Air Niugini uplifted the supplies from Singapore to Port Moresby yesterday and now to Nadi, Fiji.

Since Cyclone Winston swept through Fiji over the weekend, more than 40 deaths were recorded, thousands of people made homeless and millions of dollars’ worth of damage done to properties and infrastructure.

PX 084 departed Port Moresby at 10am; it should arrive at Nadi airport by 4:10pm. This flight goes via Honiara, Solomon Islands.

Air Niugini operates three weekly flights to Nadi via Honiara every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday.
