Port Moresby Jackson's International Airport is the gateway to Papua New Guinea and it is located in the Nations Capital City. It is the first place you will set foot and the last you will leave before you depart PNG shores.

Jacksons International Airport, also known as Port Moresby Airport, is located 5 miles (8 kilometres) outside Port Moresby, in Papua New Guinea. It is the largest and busiest airport in Papua New Guinea and is the main hub for Air Niugini, the national airline of Papua New Guinea, as well as the main hub for Airlines PNG.

 

HISTORY OF AIR SERVICES

The present day site of the Port Moresby International began as an airfield in 1940, when a runway was built by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in recognition of the strategic importance of Port Moresby in the event of war in the Pacific.

 

During World War 2 the original runway was upgraded and two additional runways were added by the United States Air Force.  These were made by using pierced steel planking (Marsden Matting). The existing passenger terminal was constructed in 1959, while a concrete, apron and parallel taxiway were completed in 1963.
