NORTHERN Air Services Charter Limited has resumed services to Labasa.
The company has also applauded Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) for successfully completing the $1.8 million upgrade of the Labasa Airport last week.
In a statement, company commercial manager Florence San said they had resumed operations after AFL and the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji (CAAF) declared the upgraded airport open.
"The company is happy with the new upgraded runway," Mrs San said.
"We will not compromise the safety of our aircraft and valued customers, neither do we intend to make any invalid excuse that will affect customers travelling to and from Labasa.
"Thus, we have increased the number of services to and from Labasa."
Mrs San said it was about time the travelling public realised the existence of Northern Air.
"We have a very good response in favour of Northern Air's operations so far and we shall maintain the good relationship we have in the north," she said.
AFL general manager Lawrence Liew last week confirmed Northern Air had resumed operations at the airport.
The route's bigger carrier, Pacific Sun, has halted all its Labasa-bound flights until AFL completes all works to meet the safety requirements at the airport.
Pacific Sun general manager Shaenaz Voss earlier said they would not resume their ATR-42 OR DH6 Twin Otter operations to Labasa until AFL completed additional work to ensure the safety of their planes and customers.
