Fiji Airways Welcomes ‘Island of Ovalau’ Into Fleet

Wednesday, 27 May 2015: Fiji Airways, Fiji National Airline, today welcomed a fifth Boeing 737-800 into its fleet. The leased aircraft – Island of Ovalau – features Fiji Airways’ award-winning livery and designs, and features eight Business Class seats and 162 Economy Class seats. It touched down at the Fiji Airways Hangar in Nadi this morning, having left the Netherlands last weekend.

Nalin Patel, Fiji Airways Chairman at the welcome event comment: “This new aircraft comes at an important time for us. It will contribute straight-away to our network, as we prepare to start direct services between Wellington and Nadi from June 25th on Thursdays and Sundays all year around. This aircraft will also allow us to add an extra service from Christchurch, also making that a twice-weekly connection to Fiji all year round as well.”
Fiji Airways will also be able to add more daylight flights to Brisbane, as well as extra frequencies on Fiji Airways’ busy Auckland and Sydney routes.

Mr. Patel added: “With this addition to our fleet we become larger and stronger. We will be able to further strengthen our position as the leader in aviation in the Pacific. It aids us in developing partnerships within the region, like the recently announced codeshare with Air Vanuatu and partnerships we are looking to put in place in Tonga.”

The ‘Island of Ovalau’ will undertake its first flight on Friday.
