PACIFIC Sun engineers yesterday completed work on a new engine for the ATR-42 aircraft that has been grounded at Labasa Airport following an engine problem.

A press statement from the company said the aircraft was expected to begin services today.

"The ATR-42 aircraft which suffered engine damage earlier this week at Labasa Airport is now serviceable and will return to Nadi from Labasa this evening (yesterday)," said the statement.

"Engineers have completed a successful engine replacement, enabling the aircraft to return to service from tomorrow (today)."

It added that the ATR-42 would resume its scheduled domestic flights.

"Pacific Sun would like to thank its passengers who were affected by this unexpected disruption for their patience and understanding," the statement said.

The aircraft has been grounded at the Labasa Airport since Monday.
