Cheap flights to Port Moresby

The capital of Papua New Guinea, Port Moresby, is home to 300,000 locals and a steady stream of tourists from all over the world. From crocodile farms to trips across the Coral Sea, there is plenty to see and do in Port Moresby. A must-see is the village of Motu where locals live in stilt houses on the ocean, but check your travel guides carefully as there are some no-go zones for travellers around these parts. The CBD of Port Moresby is evolving into a thriving modern city and some of the best architecture in Papua New Guinea is located in the Waigani suburbs – especially around Parliament House. Check out the Crystal Rapids along Laloki River and you can even trek up to the 800 metre-high Sogeri Plateau and take in the spectacular view. Student Flights can help you get to Port Moresby with our cheap flights and a range of personally-put together holiday packages that will give you the best deals in accommodation and transfers too.

Flights from Australia to Port Moresby will land at Jacksons International Airport (POM). This is Papua New Guinea’s only international airport accepting flights from Australian locations. The airport is located 8 kilometres from the city centre and taxis and shuttle services are popular choices for transfers to your hotel or the city centre.

About Port Moresby

Port Moresby is the main entry point into Papua New Guinea and a good place to make a stopover no matter where on PNG you plan to end up. Start off your Port Moresby holiday on the white sands of Ela Beach and head down to the craft market to take in the local wares on sale. Animal lovers will not be able to resist the Moitaka Wildlife Sanctuary, and there are plenty of ambassadorial residences to see up on Touguba Hill where heaps of expat locals live too. Port Moresby still has some zones that aren’t suggested as safe for travellers, but as a whole, the city has become a modern hub with a very multicultural feel.
