The airline was established in November 1973 as the national airline of Papua New Guinea

It started as an exclusively domestic carrier; however it expanded to offer international services shortly thereafter.

In founding the airline, the government aimed to encourage regional development in a country without an extensive road network.

Like the pioneers of a century ago, Air Niugini is opening up this magnificent country, sharing its ancient traditions and the unspoiled landscapes with visitors from around the world. Each year we endeavor to introduce new and exciting holiday opportunities to exhibit our country like no-one else can.

In 1979, Air Niugini opened routes to Honolulu and to Singapore via Jakarta. That same year, new facilities were opened at Jacksons Airport and new Sales Offices opened in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Europe and the United States

With the record growth, Air Niugini had not only built up its own reputation, but also increased the volume of international passengers and boosting the image of Papua New Guinea as an exotic tourist destination.

Indeed after more than 32 years of operation, Air Niugini remains as committed as ever to its future development and ensuring that national development remains a priority.

Fleet Air Niugini's fleet is composed by Boing 767-300R, F100, Q400 NextGen, Q400, DASH 8-Q315, DHC-8-202

Classes of Service Air Niugini offers 2 classes of service — Business Class and Economy Class. Most domestic routes have Economy Class only, while all international routes offer both service classes (except for services to Cairns and selected afternoon services to Brisbane).

Food and Beverage Service Air Niugini offers food and beverages on almost all flights. On domestic routes, a snack and drink are served. On all international routes, a meal is served.

In-flight Duty Free Air Niugini offers an in-flight Duty Free shop on all international flights.

Entertainment Air Niugini offers entertainment on selected international routes. Domestic flights, as well as flights to Cairns, Honiara, and Nadi, do not usually provide entertainment, but passengers to Brisbane, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong, and Tokyo are offered movies and a range of music.

Paradise magazine, Air Niugini's in-flight magazine, is complimentary on most flights. The magazine, produced every 2 months, contains a range of Papua New Guinea information and stories, as well as Air Niugini details and route maps.
