Transport in Papua New Guinea

The national airline, Air Niugini, has connecting services between Port Moresby and the major cities in Pacific Asia, and runs services to about 20 destinations within Papua New Guinea. International flights operate from Hong Kong, Singapore, Manila, Tokyo, Honiara, Cairns, Brisbane and Sydney. Many connections also operate from Europe and the UK. Travelling to Papua New Guinea by water is also a popular option, with several cruise lines operating regular services. The primary ports are Port Moresby, Alotau, Kieta, Lae, Madang, Momote, Rabaul and Wewak. Modes of transport on the island include motorised canoes or trading boats that are privately operated. Road transport is only advised around the principal towns. There is a network of roads connecting the northern coastal towns of Madang and Lae with the major urban centres in the Highlands region. Bus and taxi services as well as car hire facilities are available, though taxis tend to be expensive. Charter flights are available for those wishing to visit some of the more remote areas of the country.
