As an island nation with untouched rugged terrain extending from its coastal areas to its highlands, Papua New Guinea is generally most easily navigated by air.
Papua New Guinea has one international airport in Port Moresby, Jacksons International Airport. This is the official gateway into Papua New Guinea, situated about 8km away from the main town centre of Port Moresby. The airport itself has the domestic terminal adjacently connected (500 metres apart) to the international terminal making it easy to connect to your onward flight.
Jacksons International Airport provides Duty Free Services and Shopping for departing visitors and transit lounges for passengers connecting to other international destinations.
