New Qantas daily service between Brisbane and Port Moresby targeting resource sector

quantas-airplaneThe aircraft feature 12 business class seats, upgraded in-flight entertainment and improved seats with new covers.

The new service replaces Qantas’ previous, turboprop-operated service between Cairns and Port Moresby, and is timed to enable business travellers to arrive in Port Moresby at midday, take meetings in the afternoon or next morning, and return the next afternoon.

Qantas and Air Niugini have agreed to codeshare on routes between Australia and Port Moresby.

Qantas International CEO Gareth Evans said the route would meet strong demand from the corporate market, in particular the resources sector.

“We’re really pleased to be giving our customers more seats and better connections on this important route,” Evans said.

“Brisbane’s a growing hub that joins our domestic, trans-Tasman and international networks, and the clear message from our customers was that it was the ideal base for our Port Moresby operation.

“We’re proud to be continuing the role we’ve always played in supporting business, investment and trade between Australia and Papua New Guinea.”
