March 2015: Despite a slowdown in Southeast Asia’s more developed markets, the remote aviation market in Oceania is continuing to grow. In the coming months, new routes will be introduced in Papua New Guinea, East Java and the Solomon Islands.

National flag carrier, Solomon Airlines (SOI) will launch nonstop flights to Sydney from its Honiara base at the beginning of June. (SOI) currently offers 4x-weekly flights to Brisbane, and will add a single weekly direct flight to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith using an Airbus A320, from June 2.

Indonesian domestic carrier, Susi Air is also expanding, with plans to establish a new East Java hub at Trunojoyo Airport, in Sumenep, on Madura Island. The new location will stretch the coverage from Susi Air’s existing four hubs at Jakarta’s low-cost carrier (LCC) hub at Halim Perdanakusuma, Medan’s Kualanamu International, Balikpapan and Jayapura.

Since the recent management buyout from previous owners, Philippine Airlines (PAL) has begun expanding its network with a new nonstop flight from Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International to Papua New Guinea (PNG)’s Port Moresby airport.

News Item A-2: "Air Niugini to Take Seven Former KLM Fokker 70s" by (ATW) Jeremy Torr, October 19, 2015.

Papua New Guinea flag carrier, Air Niugini (NIU) is to add seven former (KLM) Fokker F 70 aircraft to its fleet, building on one existing former (KLM) Fokker 70 that it took in October 2014.

(NIU) said the aircraft will be used to serve domestic and regional destinations, replacing some of its Bombardier DHC-8-Q400 schedules including Lae, Mt Hagen, and Hoskins, New Britain.

(NIU) added that the type would offer increased capacity and range, compared with its 10 DHC-8-Q400 turboprops, enabling it to serve regional routes that its F 100 and Boeing fleets are "too large to operate into."

Air Niugini (NIU) General Manager, Dominic Kaumu said the aircraft would also be used for selected international destinations, including Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands' Honiara, and Cairns, Australia. The aircraft are configured with 70Y economy and 10C business seats.

(NIU) expects to take five more F 70s from (KLM) by the end of 2015, as the Dutch carrier phases out the Fokker from its regional Cityhopper (AUK) fleet, from December this year.

(KLM) is to completely replace its Cityhopper (AUK) F 70s with new Embraer EMB-190s and EMB-175s by the end of 2018.

Air Niugini (NIU) currently operates seven Fokker 100 aircraft, as well as a mixed fleet of Boeing, Airbus, Fokker and ATR models into 13 domestic and 11 international destinations.

December 2015: Air Niugini (NIU) ends its ATR freighter operations.

(NIU) currently operates 25 airplanes, to 10 countries to 35 destinations on 54 routes and 72 daily flights.

February 2016: Air Niugini (NIU) has ordered four Boeing 737 MAX 8 airplanes at the Singapore Airshow. The previously unidentified order adds to the Papua New Guinea national carrier’s fleet of Next-Generation 737s and 767-300ERs.

“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 (NIU),” (NIU) Chairman, Sir Frederick Reiher said. “As our region continues to grow, the 737 MAX is the perfect choice for (NIU) positioning us for success and ensuring we continue to provide our customers with the best experience possible. We look forward to receiving our first airplanes in 2020.”

Air Niugini (NIU) flies a 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.
