Fiji Airways brings in 17 tonnes of relief supplies donated by New Zealand

22 December 2020 

Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline, has flown in almost 17 tonnes of relief supplies and equipment from Auckland sent by the New Zealand Government to the Fiji National Disaster Management Office (NDMO). Overnight, a Fiji Airways Airbus A330 freighter service brought in numerous pallets of supplies sent by New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, facilitated by the New Zealand High Commission, Fiji’s Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Items flown over include mother and infant kits, generators, chainsaws, family hygiene kits, agriculture tool and shelter kits, collapsible water containers and other supplies. 

Mr. Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO said: “We stand ready to assist Fiji and its partners in recovery and relief efforts after the devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone Yasa. We were only too happy to bring in the 17 tonnes of relief supplies free of charge when approached by the New Zealand High Commission and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Our assistance efforts after TC Yasa began last Friday when we flew a special Fiji Link flight to Labasa as soon as the airport was ready, carrying essential medical supplies and personnel from various Government Ministries. This included six doctors and medical specialists from the Ministry of Health.” 

Fiji Airways requests all international organisations and individuals wishing to send relief supplies to coordinate their efforts though the Fiji NDMO.
