Air Niugini Boeing 767 Resumes Singapore Brisbane Flights

PX Boeing 767 is Back


Air Niugini’s Boeing 767 aircraft have now resumed operations on the airline’s Brisbane and Singapore flights following the completion of scheduled heavy maintenance checks.

Over the past six months both our 767 aircraft underwent scheduled C-check maintenance, starting with P2-PXV which returned to service in January, and followed by P2-PXW which returned to service on 20th April.

The maintenance included a complete refurbishment of the passenger cabins and lavatories.

During this period of scheduled maintenance Air Niugini’s Brisbane and Singapore flights have been operated by Omni Air International under a wet lease arrangement. This lease has now ended.

Air Niugini acknowledges Omni for the support in the last seven months while ANG’s B767s were away for the normal C checks.

The resumption of the refurbished B767 aircraft is timely as Air Niugini resumes its Tuesday Singapore service on the 07th May, increasing the frequency to a total of 5 weekly services, plus a fourth weekly service to Hong Kong from Monday 01st July.

All Singapore and Brisbane flights are now operated by our refurbished 767s with our own Air Niugini crew.

We thank our valued customers for your patience and understanding during the time the B767s were away.
