Airfare to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Port Moresby is the capital of Papua New Guinea. Travelers often spend little time here on their way elsewhere in PNG
Airfare to Port Moresby will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.
Also consider flights into Cairns, Australia. Another possible money-saving tip is to look for flights that go through Sydney, Australia, or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.
Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Air Niugini is the national airline, providing all flights that travel to Port Moresby.
The most expensive air tickets to Port Moresby are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.
Summary of Money Saving Tips:
- Fly mid-week
- Book your holiday during the off-peak season
- Look for flights that go through large cities, with many flights
- Check out carriers besides the national airline – they may undercut the monopolistic competition
