A Link PNG DHC -8 aircraft was involved in civil unrest at Mendi airport, Southern Highlands Province today following an election petition decision.
The aircraft has suffered damage when rioters invaded the tarmac, and National Airports Corporation(NAC) has also closed the airport.
Link PNG is suspending flights also to Tari and Wapenamanda until further notice, associated with these developments.
Link PNG regrets the inconvenience this may cause to our customers; however safety is always of paramount importance in our operations.
