IF the QF Dash is currently surplus to requirements, perhaps leave it in POM for Link PNG to operate as a spare aircraft.
Any regulatory issues is just purely paperwork, inter government.
With QF bleeding $40 million a week [Joyce report to ASX yesterday 5th May] any income is better than none.

Bit more than a paperwork shuffle for a PNG AOC holder to operate a foreign registered aircraft.

The flight crew and certifying engineers would need to hold Australian licenses before the show got on the road, then there would be the CASA PNG Part 119 requirements and then all the rest of it.

PX and PNG Air currently have a heap of airframes parked up due to lack of demand, couple this with one of the above mentioned airlines having all their pilots of on forced leave without pay, unless called in. Very problematic to say the least!

The current PNG domestic pax demand is very low. It will be very interesting to see which airlines in PNG are still in business at the end of the year. I will say no more, however there is certainly going to be casualties. The next 8 weeks will be very interesting.......

Interesting; only two airlines in PNG....

'Air Niugini' and its domestic 'Link PNG' would count as one airline. Government owned and will not be allowed to collapse.
PNG Air, owned by Nasfund? and I thought the ATR's were on a power by the hour lease arrangement, no fly no pay?

Hevilift, owned majority by Nasfund? not sure if they counts as an airline but a charter operator, with FIFO clients.
Missionary Ops will always be there. The NGO's are filthy rich.

Having said that;
I see Lynden Air Cargo Lockheed C-130 (P2-LAD) arrived back in Anchorage over the weekend
Columbia Helicopter appear to be leaving the civil H47 Chinook P2-CHY in Scone, NSW, probably for the next bushfire season.

Bomb shell just released to all staff within one mentioned airline.

It will be interesting to see how CASA PNG react....

Since this is a rumour network.
PNG Air will be renamed "Tropicair" and Ops normal!
Appears RH has bought the Mobil petrol outlets ???
