Do you have Silver, Gold or Platinum status with Qantas or Velocity Frequent Flyer? Then you’re eligible for access to two airport lounges that you won’t see advertised on the Qantas or Virgin Australia websites!
PNG Air is the second-largest airline in Papua New Guinea. It operates a network of domestic routes using its fleet of Dash 8 and ATR 72 aircraft.
PNG Air operates two airport lounges, in Lae and Mount Hagen. The PNG Air Connections Lounges are basic, but offer a quiet, comfortable place to wait for your flight. Tea, coffee and snacks are provided.
AFF member swanning_it recently reviewed the PNG Air Connections Lounge in Mount Hagen…
Well had my first taste of the Mt Hagen Connections Lounge today. Basic, but not too bad.
Similar to the Hagen PX Paradise Lounge, the PNG Air lounge is small but has runway views and is certainly quiet (I was the only one there).
Connections Lounge Access for Qantas & Velocity Frequent Flyers
If you happen to be flying with PNG Air from Lae or Mount Hagen, and you’re a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer or Velocity Frequent Flyer programs, you could have access to the PNG Air Connections Lounge!
A PNG Air spokesperson told Australian Frequent Flyer that “Gold or Silver” members of both frequent flyer programs can access the lounge by showing their Qantas or Velocity membership card at the check-in counter. (Presumably, Platinum members would also be allowed in.)
Neither Qantas nor Virgin Australia have a formal partnership with PNG Air. Qantas is a partner of Air Niugini, PNG’s flag carrier. Lounge access is available at some airports to eligible Qantas Frequent Flyer members when flying with Air Niugini, but only if booked on a “QF” flight number.
