Papua New Guinea is open to tourism

From February 2022, Papua New Guinea permits international travelers to visit the country – without pre-departure tests or quarantine on arrival. All foreign visitors must be fully vaccinated unless they are under 18 years of age.

Visa on Arrival (VOA) is still suspended so passengers must have a valid PNG visa prior to the travel date (you can apply on the official website).

Best time to fly to Papua New Guinea?
Here are the cheapest months/days to book flights

The best time to book cheap flights to Papua New Guinea tends to be during the low season December through March. PNG’s off-peak season takes place at the same time as the wet season – these months are notorious for rain, with high temperatures and high humidity. Travel is not popular, and with significantly fewer visitors everything (including air tickets) is cheaper. If you’d like to avoid unstable weather, the shoulder season – April and November – is also a good option. It’s a transitional time that sees less rain than the wet season, but it’s still possible to find great flight deals.

Bear in mind that plane tickets usually don’t get cheaper closer to the departure date. Even these reasonably priced flights in the low season sell out quite far ahead of the date of travel – it pays to book your ticket well in advance. The best time to buy can vary among airlines but the golden time for domestic flights usually falls between 3 weeks and 8 weeks before the departure. For international flights, give yourself even more time: start checking ticket prices at least 2-6 months beforehand to find an affordable flight.

There is one main rule airlines’ price algorithm use: the fewer seats an airline has left on a flight, the more expensive those available seats will be. Knowing how the flight ticket pricing work, will give you an advantage when booking the next flight

8 most effective travel & flight hacks for Papua New Guinea

  1. Fly in the low and shoulder season. Flying to Papua New Guinea during the low season (December through March) is one easy way to save money on flights. Papua New Guinea's low season takes place at the same time as the wet season – these months are notorious for rain, with high temperatures and high humidity. Travel is not popular, and with significantly fewer visitors everything (including air tickets) is cheaper. If you'd like to avoid unstable weather, the shoulder season – April and November –  is also a good option. It's a transitional time that sees less rain than the wet season, but it's still possible to find great flight deals. The country’s dry season – June through to October – is also its high season for travel, and it may be quite difficult to find cheap flights.
  2. Use local airlines. Papua New Guinea is a challenging country for getting around. Flying is often the most convenient mode of transport, and there are plenty of local airlines that will take you to remote places. Book in advance to get the lowest prices on domestic flights.
  3. Plan for delays. Domestic flights in Papua are often delayed due to the weather. You should plan to add a day or two to your itinerary if it involves local flights, from Port Moresby to other PNG's airports.
  4. Avoid the last flight connection of the day. Even in the post-pandemic world sudden flight cancellations may still take place. When flying domestically, try not to book the last flight out of your connecting airport. In case of a cancellation, the airline will obviously put you on its next flight, but it will require an overnight stay and arrival a day later.
  5. Watch for a good sale. Most airlines publish their web promotions frequently. To get a great bargain be sure to watch the airline sales over the course of several weeks.
  6. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to Papua New Guinea is to become a member of the Air Traveler Club. It is free to join, and deals that the members get every week are priced at least 40% below the average airfare for a given route. Some of these 'hacker fares' can save you up to 80% (!) on your next flight.
  7. Lost baggage prevention. Avoid lost luggage nightmares by removing old tags on your suitcases. Tags are printed with a barcode which is used for identification and tracking – so the old tags can really confuse baggage handlers and the conveyor belt scanners. They are one of the reasons so many bags miss their flight or get misrouted.
  8. DM instead of the call center. Use Twitter or Facebook Messenger to contact the airline customer service. If the problem arises, social media is usually a faster way to contact a real human that can answer your questions. Don't count too much on airline call centers, they are usually super busy.

Stopover options in Asia Pacific

Direct flights to your Asian destination can be expensive. So if you’re looking at a long-haul trip with at least one connection, rather than simply transiting an airport, why not take an opportunity and plan a longer stopover? It won’t only break up your journey but will become a legitimate part of your vacation.

When booking flight tickets, many airlines include a stopover en route to your final destination. Those flights are usually cheaper than non-stop flights, and they can be a great way of seeing more than one place on your trip. You can often add it at no additional cost, just by looking for multi-city flights with longer layovers.
