Air Niugini flights to and from West New Britain continue to be suspended until further notice.
Volcanic ash is still at an unacceptable level around the runway, taxiways and parking area.
Air Niugini is in contact with National Airports Corporation (NAC) and will continue to review the situation and advise when the
airport has been reopened and flights can resume.
Passengers who plan to travel to Hoskins are advised not to do so at this time as they could be stranded in Port Moresby.
