Subsequently there will be regular Tuesday and Thursday flights from Moresby to Shanghai (PX088) and return flights from Shanghai to Moresby on Wednesdays and Saturdays (PX089).
 
This follows Air Niugini's ‘China Ready' training workshops which began late last year to prepare New Guineans to take care of Chinese visitors when they arrived.
 
At the launch of the workshops, Air Niugini CEO Simon Foo said that one of the reasons for the workshops was because PNG did not have access to Union Pay, and many Chinese people used Union Pay cards.
 
"We need to gear ourselves up to make sure we are ready for it. We need to engage with our banks to have that facility for the Chinese tourists," Foo said in November last year.
