Airlines of PNG - Awarded Chevron Niugini and Porgera (PJV) Contract !

Airlines PNG have been awarded the fixed wing contract for Chevron for the supply of a Twin Otter-300 series aircraft which commenced on 01February '03 for a period of 3years and is renewable.

This contract will operate about 80hours a month for the movement of crew and personnel as well as freighting equipment and food stuff to and from Gobe to Moro and also the ports of Samberigi and Erave...all of which are in the Southern Highlands and in the main, for the Kutubu and Gobe Oil field projects.

This Otter is based in Gobe whilst the Dash8 is based in Moro for the predominant purpose of medivac and evacuation purposes.

Furthermore, Airlines PNG has reently been awarded the Porgera Joint Venture (PJV) contract and together with its sub-contractor, Heli Niugini, will supply a Dash8 and Twin Otter-300 series aircraft in the fixed wing and a Mil8 and B206 Longranger in the Rotorwing operation.

The contract is also for 3 years with renewable clauses for a further 2 years after.

The Dash8 plans to operate some 2,000 plus hours per year with the Otter some 700 hours per year and wherein the Otter will be based at Porgera's Karik airport, the Dash8 will pivot through Hagen with flights to Cairns every second day and maintained in Port Moresby as is the current 2x Dash8's in the fleet.

Airlines PNG anticipates to add at least one extra Dash 8 to its fleet, making it 3 x Dash 8's, and is reviewing adding a fourth sooner rather than later.
