Port Moresby Jacksons (POM) Airport

Port Moresby Jacksons POM Airport Overview

Port Moresby Jacksons International Airport POM serves the Independent State of Papua New Guinea & its 7.1M residents - which occupies the eastern half of the world's second-largest Island of Guinea - shaped like an allegator, closest to northern Australia, and part of Oceania.  (The western part of the Island belongs partially to Indonesia, and to the provinces of Papua & West Papua.)  Port Moresby is currently operated by NAC ( the National Airports Corportation Papua New Guinea).
Papua New Guinea (PNG) is presently one of the world's fastest growing economies.

Jackson's Airport is only 2.5 miles from the National Capital District of Port Moresby, bordering on the Coral Sea. It is owned & managed by New Guinea National Airports Corp.

With a long runway and an estimated 0.9M passengers per annum, Jackson's Airport is hub for Air Niugini & Airlines PNG, which, together with  Qantas & Virgin Australia, offer direct & connecting flights to all points of the globe. 

Visa on Arrival for Australian tourists is now available.

Jackson's International Airport has two passenger terminals connected by covered walkway: While Air Niugini & Airlines PNG serve both the domestic & international terminals - Philippine, Qantas & Virgin Australia airlines use the international terminal only.  The Airport's passenger processing system was upgraded and includes barcode scanners & common-use passenger processing systems & a multimedia flight information display.
    The International Terminal: To be ready for the Pacific Games late June 2015, Jacksons Airport finally reached world standards by completing its US$ 31M upgrade project.  This included a new departure lounge; passenger relaxation, play and working areas; new duty-free shops for departure and arrival; and new specialty retail shops for food and beverages along with other maintenance work. Security issues and congestion problems are now a thing of the past.
In November 2015 Prouds, the Fijian retailer, opened the newly expanded duty-free shopping facilities in both arrival & departure areas. Other amenities include a bank branch, ATMs, currency exchange,  rental cars counters, traveler information, post and a VIP ceremonial plaza. 
    The Domestic Terminal has a new public concourse, food court and domestic carpark. It houses rental car counters, a First-Class Lounge, ATM cash machines & eateries. 

The Virgin Australia Airport Lounge is available to eligible passengers with a valid Virgin Australia boarding pass, paying a single entry upon terminal arrival.

Parking is available in front of both terminals for short- and long-term parking
Transport:  Aside from rental cars & taxis, public buses also serve the Airport with frequent service to the City.

Present and future Airport developments.  In time for the 2018 APEX summit both international and domestic terminals are being joined, thereby gaining more space.
