Air Niugini Orders Four Boeing 737 MAX 8s

Air Niugini has ordered four Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplanes, with the first aircraft scheduled for delivery in 2020.

Boeing says that the 737 MAX, which incorporates CFM International LEAP-1B engines and winglets, will deliver 20% lower fuel use than the first Next-Generation 737s.

"Papua New Guinea is like no other place on earth and the 737 MAX will allow us to economically and efficiently connect our beautiful country with the rest of the world. The superb economics of the 737 MAX will enable us to increase flight frequencies and develop into new markets which offer significant opportunities for Air Niugini," said Sir Frederick Reiher, KCMG, KBE, Chairman of Air Niugini.

Air Niugini operates a robust domestic network of more than 25 destinations from its Port Moresby hub, as well as numerous international routes across Asia Pacific, including Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, Fiji, Philippines, Solomon Islands, Hong Kong, Vanuatu, Japan, and in the near future, China.
