FIJI Airways yesterday marked the first anniversary of its rebrand at the Nadi International Airport hangar.

The airline's 1009 staff members were commended for their collective efforts in seeing the restructured and redefined airline through its first year.

To reflect the national carrier's dramatic evolution, a massive cake display was assembled to commemorate the occasion, with an accompanying birthday rendition led by musician Big Wilz Lasaisuva.

Airline managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler paid tribute to his team, noting a strong operating performance in the last quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of this year.

"We have moved quite a lot in the last year — we have still a long way to go," he said.

"In terms of new destinations, we've announced Suva to Apia and Suva to Sydney (routes) and will announce some more. We are just getting our act together, the guys are just finishing their business cases and then we will roll. As I promised, we will grow."

He noted the various department improvements and said they had now reached some momentum in terms of their performance.

Also announced was a 50 per cent ticket slash to flights from Fiji to many of the airline's South Pacific destinations.

"We have now launched an international birthday sale, which is a 50 per cent discount on all our fares. People have to hurry up because this sale will run out on June 30 so now it's a way to see, to do, to buy."
