2 April, 2018

Air Niugini CEO Simon Foo announced his retirement after more than 40 years with the national carrier ( National, 29-Mar-2018). Mr Foo will be succeeded by Tahawar Durrani as the acting CEO. Mr Foo said: "There have been many highlights but one of the biggest thrills for me was the opportunity to live and work around PNG and overseas". On the outlook, Mr Foo said: "I would hope, following what the Government wants to do, is that we become a better shareholder and be privatised so that the airline is run as a full business... Then we can take advantage of numerous opportunities, especially our geographical position between Asia and the Pacific and making the airline grow and support the nation's growth as well".
