Four unions want to nix proposed airline merger

Air Niugini F28 The four unions in Papua New Guinea's national airline are reported to be against the government's proposal to merge state-owned carrier Air Niugini with the publicly-listed Airlines PNG.

The government is justifying the move by saying that both airlines are struggling.

The National Broadcasting Commission reports that Air Niugini's National Airlines Employees Association, National Air Pilots Union, Flights Attendants Association and Aircraft Engineers Association all strongly oppose the idea.

The National Airlines Employees Association says it believes the merger will displace local employees and not do any good.
