Arrival at Jackson's Airport

Your touchdown is on the tarmac of Jackson's International Airport which is 11km (seven miles) from the centre of Port Moresby.

There are rental car counters, a bank and a duty free shop within the airport complex.

Major hotels have a courtesy bus to and from the airport.

Taxis are quite old here in PNG and if you are looking for comfort, arrange transport beforehand, either with your hotel when your booking is made, or ask a friend to meet you, or hire a vehicle if you are familiar with the city.

Within the city, PMV's (public motor vehicles) cost 50toea per journey. Once again, not recommended unless you are from PNG and know where you are going.

All PMV's are numbered for various areas surrounding our city and do not go into the airport grounds.

Press Release 15/01/01


The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Papua New Guinea wishes to advise the travelling Public that International Departing Passengers will be required to pay a compulsory "Terminal Facilities Charge" of Thirty Kina (K30.00) as part of their pre-boarding formalities.
