Operating an airline company is harder still in this country. The cost of aviation fuel, useless CAA officials who come up with unusual Aviation rules etc...has a major effect in this country. But Aviation companies, any aviation companies must have top Safety regulations. Airlink lacks that and as a result lives were lost, planes are down....and it is a must that they have to be grounded.
I tell you what, for another aviation company to operate in this Country,
1:You have to have a goverment who has the heart for the people. The NA lead Goverment is not, so congrats to whoever voted your members to form that.They wanted Tourist's to come to PNG. They would love their people to enjoy cheap travel costs....otherwise, NA and grand Thief' Somare is accumulating all the wealth so yupela long PNG, maski istap rabis..Poverty is only good for you folks
2: Like every Goverment Dept, CAA is the most useless, unproductive org.
3: Aviation Fuel costs are not cheap.
