PAE applies for PNG capacity

written by australianaviation.com.au | December 7, 2009

Brisbane based freight carrier Pacific Air Express has lodged an application with the International Air Services Commission to operate a weekly cargo service from Brisbane to Port Moresby.

PAE says that it plans to operate the service using an Airwork (NZ) Boeing 737-300F which would offer an available payload of 17.5 tonnes, with the capacity to be used by March 31 2010. The carrier is seeking a five year determination.

Aside from belly space on Air Niugini services, the only other air freight capacity on offer is from HeavyLift Cargo Airlines, which operates a once weekly Boeing 727-100 service between Brisbane and Port Moresby.
