SOLOMON Airlines' inaugural international flight to Fiji touched down at Nadi International Airport about 10am yesterday.

The 136-seat Airbus A320 en-route to Brisbane will become a permanent fixture on the arrivals calendar with four weekly flights to Honiara on its return from Brisbane.

Raj Prasad, Solomon Airlines manager for Fiji and the Pacific Islands, said apart from enjoying chic decor, passengers intending to fly to Honiara would also enjoy a special fare.

"The Airbus has more leg room and very comfortable leather seats. Also included in the special fare of $699 return is in-flight service and movies," he said.

Mr Prasad said Air Terminal Services would be doing ground handling and catering services for all Solomon Airlines' flights.

While airfares on the Nadi-Honiara leg have been announced, fares from Nadi to Brisbane will be revealed shortly.

The Airbus visited Nadi for the first time last year when the airline was investigating the possibility of operating flights into the country.
