Update: 11:44AM FIJI'S national airline has plans to strengthen its regional network with two more additions to its South Pacific schedule.

In a statement today, Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler says the South Pacific region is a key growth target for the airline.

"We will increase capacity to the region by almost 90 per cent. These two additions to the schedule are part of that plan," Mr Pichler said.

"The direct Honiara service and an additional Funafuti service will strengthen our already comprehensive regional network."

He said Fiji Airways would operate a third weekly flight on Saturdays between Suva and the Tuvaluan capital to complement its Tuesday and Thursday services.
