Air Niugini passes on fuel savings

4:45 pm on 14 January 2015

Air Niugini has announced it will be reducing airfares for both domestic and international sectors from next month.

The airline says the decrease is due to a drop in crude oil prices on the world market, allowing the fuel surcharge to be reduced as well.

Most domestic travelers will see a reduction of about three US dollars per one-way sector while international flights will cost 30 to 40 US dollars less.

Air Nuigini says it will continue to monitor crude oil prices and if prices continue to drop, these savings will be passed onto the travelling public.
