Qantas has applied to the International Air Services Commission (IASC) for an extension of its code share with Air Niugini on the Papua New Guinea (PNG) route.

According to the application, Qantas will place its code on Air Niugini services between Sydney and Port Moresby, Brisbane and Port Moresby, and vice versa.

Qantas wants to use the capacity in code share services with Air Niugini from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2017.

On a separate note, the IASC has responded favourably to Qantas' 10 February application to operate unlimited capacity between points in Australia and points in Japan, other than Narita and Haneda airports, for a period of 10 years.

The IASC said Qantas was the only applicant for capacity.
