Update: 12:14PM SEVERE weather in the Central Division has caused the cancellation of the Suva-Lakeba and Lakeba-Suva services today, Fiji Airways managing director Stefan Pichler said.

He said some Pacific Sun flights to Labasa, Suva and the Lau Group had also been delayed while a Labasa-Suva flight had to be diverted to Nadi because of heavy rain and thunderstorms in the Suva Nausori area. 

Nausori airport was closed for refueling and boarding of passengers.

Meanwhile. all Fiji Airways international flights are operating as normal today.

"There have been minimum delays out of Nadi today," Mr Pichler said.

"However, due to weather conditions en-route, all aircraft had to carry return fuel which has led to the offload of baggage.

"Weather permitting, all bags will be dispatched on the afternoon flights."
