Tufi is located in Oro Province on the northern side of the mainland of Papua New Guinea, approximately 250 kilometres due east of the capital, Port Moresby. Situated on the tip of Cape Nelson, Tufi is also 130km south east of the famous Kokoda Trail and Popondetta, the major provincial township.

All flights to Tufi are with PNG’s premier charter airline, Tropicair which flies Port Moresby to Tufi return every Monday and Friday. Tufi Resort guests can enjoy the benefit of private check-in at the Tropicair terminal whilst avoiding queues and cancellations at the domestic airport. 

Speak to the Tufi Reservations team to book your domestic airfares.  We can also assist with transfers from Port Moresby International to the Tropicair terminal if transiting the same day.
