Board Chairman Sir Frederick Raia says the regional event coincides with PNG’s 40th Anniversary, and the National Airline is happy to market the event.
The popular yellow lagatoi with red, green, black and blue colours capturing the games spirit and PNG; is now visible on two Boeings’ 737 and a Fokker 100 aircraft.
Present at the launching yesterday, was Public Enterprises and State Investments Minister Ben Micah, Sports Minister Justin Tkatchenko, and Partner Organizations Officials.
Chairman Raia said Air Niugini will also be responsible for the athletes, and their cargo movements.
Meanwhile, Air Niugini’s fleet modernization will see the Boeing Aircraft’s upgrading under the retrofit program, to be completed before the Pacific Games.
