Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Andre Viljoen says all applicable laws were adhered to” prior to the axing of all 435 cabin crew.

In response to queries on whether the Fiji Flight Attendants Trade Union was consulted – and why the airline had not considered an offer from the union that cabin crew would work for free until the situation normalised – Mr Viljoen insisted every avenue had been explored.

“This was an extremely difficult decision, and one that was made only after all other avenues were exhausted, in order to ensure Fiji Airways’ survival,” he said.
