NATIONAL airline Fiji Airways is set to welcome its latest aircraft, the Airbus A350-900 later this month.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said the new Airbus A350-900 extra wide model has been officially handed over to Fiji from Airbus in France.

“We’ve now added a beautiful new flagship to our Fiji Airways fleet with Fiji’s and indeed the Pacific’s very first Airbus A350-900 extra-wide body, which has just made its way from France to Dubai with our Attorney General on board to participate in the Dubai Air Show,” he said.

“I will then join him in Sydney to bring her home on the 23rd of this month.

“Marking a milestone in aviation and demonstrating how we will continue to expand our economy by keeping Fiji on the cutting-edge.”
