According to ADB website, ADB is helping Papua New Guinea upgrade its national airports to strengthen aviation safety and services. The second project under the program will strengthen the operations of National Airports Corporation, Papua New Guinea Air Services Limited, and Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Papua New Guinea. It will improve airport infrastructure and air traffic management and navigation services.

The proposed Tranche 2 will establish a sustainable civil aviation network to support the economic growth of the country. The outcome will be safer, more secure, and more efficient all-weather access to air transport services in the project areas.
