First B737-800 aircraft arrives this week

Acting Chief Executive Officer, Gary Seddon confirmed with this newsroom this morning.

“We are just getting it registered for PNG.”

Mr Seddon further clarified that the cancellation of the purchase of Dash 8-Q400 last month was due to the substandard quality of the aircraft.

“I did cancel the Q400 because we weren’t getting what we needed. I have a new order in place.

“But I don’t want to waste our money on planes that will just sit there broken,” he told this newsroom.
