The Papua New Guinea National Flag carrier Air Niugini has proudly sponsored APEC 2018 Papua New Guinea Logo on four of its aircrafts that make international flights.

The aircrafts include two Boeing 737s and two Boeing 767s aircrafts that are now carrying the logo promoting APEC 2018.

APEC Minister Hon. Justin Tkatchenko said during the launching that promoting the country during this period was important and thanked Air Niugini for the move.

“This is special,” he said.

“When our planes fly throughout the world, they will show everybody that APEC is coming to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, and that we are hosting this major economic event.

“We should all be proud, as in the coming months, we’ll be hosting 20 leading economic countries from around the world,” Minister Tkatchenko said.
