Minister praises MAF’s efforts
The National, Thursday 18th October, 2012
CIVIL Aviation Minister Davis Steven has some generous words of appreciation and praise for the Missionary Fellowship Aviation for its contribution to the country over the past 61 years.
The MP for Esa’ala open said MAF was not just another ordinary airline company but, a “very special” one carrying out a “special role” in PNG.
Speaking at the Kagamuga Airport yesterday about MAF’s dedicated service and celebrating the arrival of its new Cessna aircraft from Australia, Steven said: “I want to thank and congratulate MAF on behalf of the people in the country for playing a very significant role in serving the remote people where no other aircraft could serve.
“I see a new partnership with MAF because this is not just another ordinary airline company.”
Steven said MAF’s dedicated and committed service was highly appreciated.
MAF’s operation manager Patrick Williams said the new plane brought the total number of aircraft to 15 in the country.
He said MAF served 250 rural airstrips in the country.
Williams said the new plane, worth K3 million, was donated by overseas missions in Poland, England, Norway and Sweden to support the work of MAF in serving the rural people in the country.
