INTER Island Airways Fiji has been granted licences to operate in Fiji but the airline has to meet all local aviation requirements needed, says Attorney- General and Minister for Civil Aviation Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

He said government had been proactive in assisting the airline set up in the country but the onus was on the carrier to ensure it met Fiji's high aviation standards.

"They have been given all the licences to operate in Fiji and it is up to them now," he said.

"In fact we are arranging with Airports Fiji Limited to give them a spot in the check-in area.

"But obviously, in respect of any aircraft they bring in, like any other airline operator in Fiji, they have to meet the various standard and safety checks certified by the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji."

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum added that all aircraft registered and operating out of the country fell under the auspices of CAAF.

"Even the A330s that Fiji Airways brought in were certified by CAAF."

Inter Island Airways Fiji had initially announced it would begin offering domestic air services in July 2013.

This has since been rescheduled to April this year.

The airline plans to operate services between Nadi and Suva, to Labasa, Savusavu, Taveuni, Kadavu and Rotuma.
