Port Moresby Airport customer review

Review by (New Zealand)

I find that boarding and getting out of the plane is quite fast. However if you're travelling Virgin Australia their planes do not connect to the gate so you'll have to come out and walk to the terminal. As off 25th September 2013 - all tourist visas are now free. Passport queues always take a long time and it gets stuffy. I arrived on 26th to find out that I now have an extra K100 in my pocket. There is a BSP Bank branch by the carousel but also inside the general terminal area. I carry around my digicel simcard with me so I buy phone credit as soon as I walk out with my bags. You don't have to go and wait outside as there are people around. I feel safer waiting inside and looking out the window for my pick up to arrive.

Port Moresby Airport customer review

Arriving late at night from Brisbane on a delayed flight we were quickly off the plane and through customs without a long delay for baggage - but remember PGK100 for a visitors visa! Security is fairly tight due to the general problems of PNG and only passengers with tickets are allowed into the terminals. The domestic terminal is somewhat more crowded and more confusing with limited facilities but is relatively clean. Returning from outside POM you may well find that there is no international baggage transfer - you need to walk the three hundred or so metres between the terminals with your baggage - but it is a covered walkway with lots of security staff everywhere. After check-in there is then a wait (with few available chairs) until customs is opened about an hour before the flight. Once through things go fairly smoothly though there is not much airside apart from the small Air Niugini lounge which is pleasant enough. For the size of Port Moresby a reasonable enough experience though more seating would be good.

The arrivals hall at the international terminal is clean and tidy but does not cope well with any more than 2 large aircraft arriving at the same time. It can take over an hour to clear customs and there is only one baggage conveyor. The only ATM is after passport control and you will need PGK500 if you wish to purchase a visa - so it pays to have your currency ready before you depart for POM. The departure lounge is also very clean and tidy and customs and immigration are efficient. However if you wish to do shopping there is only one very small duty free shop and an even smaller cafe after customs and security.

Things have improved a little - arrival is chaotic if a large plane (eg 767 from BNE) it took an hour from arrival to leaving. The money exchange was open you still pay for your visa. Check-in was very efficient . There is still one shop pre customs and some food available afterwards. You do not have to get wet anymore when boarding. Domestic more challenging when checking in. You do walk to the planes although some covered walk ways. Was quick delivering checked bags from internal flight.
