So, where is Papua New Guinea?
When you are planning an international vacation, it is vital to get everything mapped out months in advance. Papua New Guinea, commonly known as “PNG,” is nestled just south of the equator, 100 miles (160km) north of Australia, and is roughly the size of California. If you’re traveling from the United States, it is directly across the Pacific Ocean from Los Angeles. Unfortunately, there are not direct flights from LA to PNG; however, there are connecting flights via Australia and various other countries. We have provided a list of all travel times, destinations, and airlines that provide Papua New Guinea travel. Jackson International Airport, located in Port Moresby – the capital of Papua New Guinea – is the main entrance for both air and boat traffic, and serves as a stopping point for connecting flights to other major provinces.
