Air Niugini will today resume operations to Buka airport, Autonomous Region of Bougainville (ARoB).
PX 252 departs Port Moresby at 09:30am to Buka via Rabaul. It arrives in Buka at 1:05pm and departs at 1:35pm before arriving back in Port Moresby at 2:05pm.
Air Niugini had to suspend flights to Buka on the 12th of this month after National Airports Corporation (NAC) closed the airport due to security and safety issues on the ground, which have now been resolved.
Air Niugini operates six flights per week to and from Buka airport (daily except for Sundays), and twice weekly services to and from Aropa airport in Kieta. Some flights operate directly between Port Moresby and Buka whilst others route via Rabaul.
