Fiji Airways has introduced dedicated freighter flights to assist businesses and exporters alike. The freighter services also assist in the carriage of essential supplies on the airline’s network, and keep the economy moving. 

The airline has a range of aircraft in its domestic Fiji Link as well as its international fleet it uses for freighter services; from the world-class Airbus A350-900 XWB with its superior payload for international short-haul and long-haul flights, to the ATR Turbo-prop fleet. The ATR 72-600 aircraft is regularly converted into a freighter by removing most seats. This allows for efficient regional cargo flights between Pacific Island Countries.

Fiji Airways operates up to 10 freighter services a week. Please download the freighter flyer here for information on destinations served and key contacts.
