Firstly, on behalf of Baia Sportfishing PNG, we would like to thank our guests who have been very patient during this pandemic. We are a family run business who takes pride in creating a memorable fishing experience for you in Papua New Guinea so your support is grealty appreciated.
Please read the following COVID-19 update regarding 2021 & 2022 Fishing Trips.
COVID-19 in PNG
COVID-19 has impacted PNG slightly with approximately 800+ cases and rising. You can keep up to date with the latest information via the link here: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/papua-new-guinea/
The Australian Government has made a huge effort in maintaing lower COVID-19 cases in comparison to the rest of the world. One of their strict rules includes restrictions to international travel. Unfortunately, in this current climate, it is unlikely that we will see international travel open FOR TOURISM between PNG and Australia until mid or late 2021.
FISHING TRIPS IN 2021
To our valued guests who have rescheduled their trip, and to our newly booked guests, we thank you for your patience and flexibility. Like you, we can't wait to get back into the fishing! In the event your trip will be impacted by the COVID-19 travel restrictions, we will postpone the trip to a later date in 2021 or a date in 2022 that suits you (at no extra charge of course). We urge you to keep up to date with your COVID-19 infromation provider for any changes to travel restrictions. If you would like to rebook your 2021 trip to next year 2022 now, please email email@example.com . Otherwise we will be in touch with you if we believe your trip needs to be postponed.
WHAT ABOUT MY FLIGHTS?
If Baia Sportfishing has booked flights with Air Niugini on your behalf, we will contact Air Niugini to change your ticket to OPEN tickets. For our guests who had their flights booked in 2020, these tickets HAVE ALREADY been changed to open tickets until December 2021. Air Niugini has advised that they WILL EXTEND this period into 2022 if travel restrictions are still active.
CAN I BOOK A TRIP IN 2022?
You sure can! If you are concerned 2021 will not be a possibility for you, we would be happy to provide some dates in 2022 for your consideration. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our 2022 dates at this link: BOOK 2022.
Thank you again for your time and patience during this pandemic. We really look forward to taking you on your fishing adventure soon. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
