New chapter in history

PACIFIC Sun, a subsidiary of Fiji Airways, will officially become Fiji Link on Friday June 6.

It is also the day the domestic and semi-regional carrier will take delivery of its brand new 68-seater ATR 72-600 aircraft from France.

Fiji Airways Group managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler said the rebranding of Pacific Sun and arrival of the new aircraft will mark a new chapter in the airline's history.

"As we announced last November, the new brand for Pacific Sun will be an extension of the Fiji Airways brand," he said.

"The Fiji Link aircraft will have a distinct, yet part-of-the-family look with the Fiji Airways fleet, and therefore retains prominent brand elements in its livery and design.

"This includes the name 'FIJI' featuring prominently on the belly on the aircraft."

Mr Pichler said Pacific Sun's delivery team were at the ATR facility in Toulouse and the aircraft would make six stops before arriving in the country at 11am on June 6.
