Default Air Niugini getting 2 x 787's in 2026.


Australia will be supporting Air Niugini's fleet replacement program.

This was made possible at an officials' letter exchange between PNG's Kumul Consolidated Holdings and Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Minister for State Enterprises, William Duma, joined Australian High Commissioner, Jon Philp, in Canberra on 16 February to witness Kumul Consolidated Holdings Managing Director, Professor David Kavanamur, and HC Philp exchange counterpart letters securing Australian technical support for Air Niugini’s fleet replacement program to explore and progress financing options.
Air Niugini’s fleet modernisation program supports the airline’s priority of safety first. The new fleet will improve service delivery, reliability and encourage network expansion and diversity.

For its widebody fleet, the airline looks forward to replacing the current Boeing 767s with two new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, to be delivered in 2026. For its narrow body fleet, Air Niugini is transitioning its Fokker fleet to a more efficient modern regional jet replacement.

“The Australian Government recognises the importance of securing Air Niugini’s future fleet as a critical infrastructure solution for PNG,” said HC Philp.
