Island flights to improve

Felix Chaudhary
Saturday, May 31, 2014

THE arrival of Pacific Sun's brand new ATR 72-600 aircraft on June 6 along with the rebrand to Fiji Link will coincide with a total redesign of the operations and network of the domestic and semi-regional carrier.

Fiji Airways Group managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler said passengers would also see an improved inter-island connectivity in the services that would be provided.

"Connectivity with Fiji Airways' international schedules will be enhanced to offer customers seamless connections to the North and other island destinations," he said.

"The airline is also tracking extremely well with its On-Time Performance every month, and this is expected to remain as two further new aircraft join the Fiji Link fleet later this year." The airline's existing ATR-42-500 aircraft will be replaced by another ATR 72-600 and ATR 42-600 series aircraft.
