The new look Port Moresby Jacksons airport is impressive.

Have you been to the redeveloped Jackson’s International Airport in Port Moresby? If not, we have some images below taken recently and as you will see, it is not only a major change it is equally impressive.

Here are ten features of the redeveloped departures we love.

  1. Prouds Duty Freeairport_113937
    Once you go arrive at the Customs check area, the background is so inviting you’ll want to get customs clearance as soon as possible so that you can start shopping at Prouds Duty Free Shop.  The modern layout, the quality of the products and the variety brings to you whole different duty free shopping experience.
  2. Duffy cafeairport_114905Everyone wants to have a bite before they board and Duffy offers a variety of food and beverages.
  3. Custom security screeningairport_114014The security gate to the Customs Clearance section now has an electronic gate.  Simply slide your boarding pass through the machine and the gate automatically opens.  It’s a hassle free experience.
  4. Jackson’s Tales Bar & Loungeairport_122237
    If you’re not in the mood for a coffee from Duffy’s perhaps sipping PNG’s favourite lager at Tales Bar & Lounge might sound like the best alternative.
  5. Looking at at the airport runawayairport_130422
    The view from the lounge is spectacular as you can clearly see the runaway from wherever you’re seated in the lunge.
  6. Variety of duty free itemsairport_114830
    The variety of shops available in the departures lounge makes duty free shopping more exciting. It’s your last shopping experience before you board so you want to spend the last Kina
  7. Signs to guide you aroundairport_114725
    The lounge isn’t as big as the Brisbane or Sydney airport but nevertheless clear signage is always important.  And the new airport provides clear signage around the lounge.  If you can recall the days before the redevelopment, lack of signage made navigating around the airport a real frustration.  And amongst all the heat and humidity, it wasn’t the best of experiences.
  8. Arrival duty freeairport_131804
    Prouds Duty Free Shop isn’t just in the Departures Lounge.  On arrival, you get one last shot at dropping at Prouds before you make your way towards Customs.
  9. Flight Espressoairport_112107
    Flights Espresso offers quality food and beverages. Maybe a little bit pricey but it certainly offers something new to those checking-in or those seeing off friends and relatives.  It’s available to the public.
  10. Cleaner and spacious check-in areaairport_112448
    Finally, the check-in area is a lot cleaner and more spacious.
