Port Moresby Jacksons (POM) Airport
Port Moresby Jacksons POM Airport Overview
Port Moresby Jacksons International Airport POM is located on the large Island of Guinea, four miles from Port Moresby, on the Coral Sea in southeast Papua New Guinea. It is managed by New Guinea National Airports Corportation. No official website was found. The site was the former 'Jackson Field', which played a major role during 1942-1945.
Jacksons Airport is the hub for Air Niugini & Airlines PNG which serves domestic airports, as well as airports in Honiara (Solomon Islands), Nadi (Fiji), and major airports in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Manila, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Sidney, Brisbane and Cairns.
Jacksons International Airport has two passenger terminals with a connecting covered walkway, The International Terminal has a restaurant, a snack bar, limited souvenir/duty free stores, and a foreign exchange service.
According to recent traveler comments, it should be noted that while arrivals/departure halls at the international terminal are 'clean & tidy', the arrivals hall does not cope well with more than two large aircraft arriving simultaneously and things can become chaotic. Customs can take over an hour, and only one baggage conveyor is available. Also, if you have to purchase a visa (PGK 500) at Port Moresby Airport, make sure you have your currency ready before you get there, as there is only one ATM machine after passport control. After customs and security there is only a very small duty-free shop and an even smaller cafe available.
