Port Moresby's Jacksons International airport to undergo upgrade
The improvements to the PMIA Car Parks and Transport services is part of the overall revenue drive supported by the NAC Board to generate revenue that will go towards improvements and operational upkeep of other airports as well,” Mr Yopo said. “In addition to CCTV surveillance at the PMIA Car Parks, NAC will also provide covered walkways for car park users and secure gated parking for travellers who wish to leave their vehicles at the airport overnight or for long term. Customers will be able to pay for parking using their credit cards as well as book a parking slot online through the new PMIA website when the system comes into operation in the future,” he said. “In 2017, NAC will be implementing changes to the operations of the Port Moresby International Airport.
These changes encompass improvements to parking, transport to and from the airport and taxi access to the terminal kerbsides. The changes are guided by provisions of the Civil Aviation Act 2000,” he said. He said the projects will start immediately with Expressions of Interest for taxi contracts and the supply and installation of the Parking System to be made public in the coming days. The Airport Bus operation is planned to commence in the second quarter of 2017.
