THE sneak peek commercial flight of Air Pacific's newest and most sophisticated bird to Auckland yesterday signified the importance of the New Zealand market to the airline and to Fiji's tourist industry.

This, according to outgoing managing director and chief executive officer David Pflieger when commenting on the significance of the airbus A330's inaugural commercial flight to Auckland.

"New Zealand is an essential part of our global network, and we are excited to be replacing our venerable B747s with new state-of-the art A330 aircraft that come equipped with the latest in passenger comfort and in-flight entertainment features," he said.

"With a history spanning more than 60 years, in June, Air Pacific will be returning to its 1951 roots with new 'Fiji Airways' branding as well as new service, new product, and new crew uniforms that are authentic, distinctive and true to our friendly Fijian culture and heritage." Mr Pflieger said the new aircraft and its uniquely Fijian livery made a big impact upon arrival in New Zealand.
