Papua New Guinea’s national flag carrier, Air Niugini, will commence flights to the Federated States of Micronesia on Dec. 3.
The airline made its maiden flight to Chuuk and Pohnpei in September when it flew in PNG delegates attending the 47th Pacific Islands Forum.
It will be operating two return air services a week, every Wednesdays and Saturdays, from Port Moresby to Chuuk and Pohnpei.
FSM is located in the northwestern Pacific and is one of the most remote and beautiful spots in the world with a lot of activities to offer.
Connections are available from Cairns, Brisbane, Sydney, Manila, Singapore, Nadi and Honiara to the FSM.
So what exactly can you do in FSM, you might ask. Well, here’s a brief overview:
Clear warm waters with best underwater visibility and the biggest ship wreck site of WWII offers divers an unique marine adventure. FSM has some of the world’s best lagoons and most mesmerizing waterfalls. Caves too can be found here in these islands. But it’s not all about water fun though because FSM is also a place for hikers, trekkers and historical buffs. The ancient manmade mysterious city of Nan Madol which is the only city in the world built on coral reef is a must see. The Federated States of Micronesia has a visa on arrival policy for Papua New Guinea passport holders. See here for more information
