THE Fiji Airways Group recorded its highest ever profit before tax amounting to $95.8 million for 2017.

Eligible non-management staff of Fiji Airways and its subsidiary Fiji Link will each receive a profit-share payout of $4400 while eligible managers of the two companies will each receive a management bonus of no less than $9900.

Airline CEO and managing director Andre Viljoen said it was a massive achievement for the team to have a fourth year of successive record profits.
