Travel to Kimbe

Hello, I am planning a business trip to Kimbe. I eared that Hoskings Airport was closed because of a volcano eruption. Is it now rehabilitated ?. I should come from Europe to Singapore via Port Moresby around mid march to stay for a week at Kimbe. Can I get information about the most efficient and cost effective way to go to Kimbe. Do you know in which hotel I could stay and if I can rent a car there.
Thanks for your guidance, Best Regards,

Colas

Hi, I will check this out today at work and will post something tonight.

I heard some fellow workmates talking about this late last week because airports around Hoskins/Kimbe have been opening and closing at random.

Will keep you posted.

HELLO AGAIN,

Hoskins airport I have been assured is now open so you can access Kimbe through this port.

You will then have about a 1/2 drive into the town of Kimbe so you will need to be collected or have alternative transport arranged.

Re accommodation - Walindi Plantation Resort just outside Kimbe is probably the most known and is recommended.

Walindi Plantation Resort
PO BOX N/A Kimbe 621
Tel: 9835441, 9835541
Fax: 9835638

Also on our website at the following address there are many threads in relation to Walindi if you wish to know more about this resort :

There is also Laimo Resort where some of my fellow workmates stay can be contacted at the following address & telephone numbers :

Liamo Reef Resort
PO BOX N/A Kimbe 621
Tel: 9834366
Fax: 9834371

you could also try :

Avis Rent A Car
Telephone: +675 325 8299

Budget
Telephone : +675 325 4111

Re travel arrangements :

You would have to book Port Moresby to Hoskins return. There are standby specials on where you can travel weekly...weekends or whatever but you would be best contacting a travel agent direct with this question.

Please email Airlines of Papua New Guinea at the following email address for further information :

Clement Kulakee

or

sales@airniugini.com.pg

Hope this helps
