Air Niugini wishes to advise the traveling public that the airline has reduced its fuel surcharge for the domestic and international sectors, effective as of yesterday, Saturday 28th July 2012.
Air Niugini Chief Executive Officer, Mr Wasantha Kumarasiri said the decrease is due to drop in the prices of crude oil on the world market.
He said all domestic sectors will see fuel surcharge reduced by K10.00 per sector.
