AIR NIUGINI COMMEMORATES 44TH INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY.
Friday, 13 Sep 2019
Air Niugini staff took time out from work this morning to commemorate the country’s 44th Independence anniversary.
Staff were smartly dressed in their traditional attire and with the red, black and gold PNG colors.
The event began with a dedication prayer followed by Air Niugini Managing Director, Alan Milne’s Independence message as he addressed the staff.
This was then followed by the national anthem and the pledge during the flag raising ceremony.
In his Independence message, Mr. Milne said, “Since starting with Air Niugini in October last year, I feel like Port Moresby and PNG is now my home. Air Niugini is two years older than PNG. We started before the country gained Independence and that means a lot. Working for a national flag carrier we can see how proud the people are of Air Niugini. The K44 Independence promotion fare is about giving back to PNG. It’s nice to come into such a family oriented environment here at Air Niugini and that is what the PNG culture is about.”
Since this is Mr. Milne’s first Independence celebration in PNG, he was formally welcomed by the staff who gifted him with carvings including a Bird of Paradise emblem
The management and staff of Air Niugini wish the people of Papua New Guinea a Happy 44th Independence Anniversary.
