Fiji Airways and Pacific Sun Improve On-Time Performance Again for March 2014

Thursday, 10 April 2014: Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline, and Pacific Sun, its regional and domestic subsidiary, today reported their March 2014 on-time performance (OTP) results.

Fiji Airways reported continued improvements to its OTP results with a performance of 87.6% in March, compared to 82.7% in February and 80% for January 2014.

Pacific Sun continued its outstanding on-time performance, reporting 93.6% in March, compared to 92.8% in February and 94.1% in January 2014.  

Stefan Pichler, Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO comments: “Even with one of our A330s out of service for unscheduled maintenance, our teams worked hard to keep disruptions at a minimum level. We have contacted affected customers, have re-scheduled flights, swapped aircraft and added supplementary flights where needed. These efforts have seen us maintain our on-time performance for March at record levels. I do apologise for disruptions to their travel plans in March. We never compromise on safety, and the reschedules and aircraft swaps were necessary for safe operations.”

As an update, Mr Pichler adds that internal investigations into the hard landing of the A330 in Sydney in March are still continuing, and further information will be released once these have concluded. Fiji Airways expects the A330 to return to service in April. 

On Pacific Sun, soon to be Fiji Link, Mr Pichler notes: “The Pacific Sun team must be congratulated for delivering continued excellent on-time performance.”

The on-time performance for both airlines is available on the Fiji Airways website: /about-fiji-airways/on-time-performance/

OTP is a global airline industry benchmark which measures aircraft flight departures as being on time if they depart from the gate within 15 minutes of the airline’s scheduled departure time.
