New Services to Enhance Regional Connectivity

Thursday 23 January 2014: Fiji Airways has announced further strengthening of its regional network with two more additions to its South Pacific schedule.

As another deliverable of its Five-Year Strategic Masterplan, the Fijian National Carrier will introduce a new direct weekly service between Nadi and Honiara as well as a third weekly service between Suva and Funafuti.

Starting June 21st, Fiji Airways will operate a third weekly flight on Saturdays between Suva and the Tuvaluan capital to complement its Tuesday and Thursday services. The flight will be operated by subsidiary Pacific Sun (soon to be ‘Fiji Link’) using its ATR 42-500 aircraft.

On Saturdays starting July 5, the airline will operate a direct service between Nadi and Honiara, departing in the afternoon and returning the same evening using its B737-700. This is in addition to the Fiji Airways continuation service (Nadi – Port Vila – Honiara) on Tuesdays, and the Saturday direct Nadi-Port Vila services.

Stefan Pichler, Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO commented: “We revealed during our Five-Year Masterplan announcement recently that the South Pacific region is a key growth target for Fiji Airways, and we will increase capacity to the region by almost 90%. These two additions to the schedule are part of that plan. The direct Honiara service and an additional Funafuti service will strengthen our already comprehensive regional network.”

In a further boost, the airline has announced that it will have six flights a week between Fiji - Samoa and Fiji – Tonga, and five flights between Fiji and Vanuatu by mid-2014.

“We now connect the Pacific Islands to key long haul markets like United States and Hong Kong on our own network like no other airline does. This presents people of the Pacific increased opportunities for business and leisure travel beyond the region, as well as connect visitors from the United States, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand to these countries.”
“It provides added impetus for business and trade to our friends in the region through our Nadi hub. We strongly believe in the growth potential in the South Pacific. Our Five Year Masterplan highlights our commitment and underscores our desire to remain the leading network airline in the region.”

Fiji Airways had earlier announced its direct Suva – Apia and and Suva – Sydney services beginning May 2014. On January 10th, the carrier revealed its blueprint outlining growth plans up to 2017. Expanding the airline’s route network through key airline partnerships, increasing capacity, operating profits and passenger numbers, as well as growing the fleet are key targets for Fiji Airways.
