Air Pacific’s first once-a-week direct flight from Suva to Port Vila will take off this morning.
The direct service on Sundays between the capitals of Fiji and Vanuatu will be operated by the airline’s wholly-owned subsidiary Pacific Sun using its forty-two seat ATR42-500 aircraft.
Pacific Sun general manager, Shaenaz Voss, said this flight was in addition to Air Pacific’s already twice-weekly Nadi-Port Vila flight.
The move is in line with the airline’s commitment to catering for the demands of its customers.
She added: “We are responding to demands from our customers and giving them what they want.”
Air Pacific said the new direct service provides reduced travel times for customers and increases the number of travel options between the two cities to three days a week.
Air Pacific chief executive and managing director, Dave Pflieger had earlier said they were confident their weekly direct service would be beneficial to regional students, academics, and the many regional and inter-government organisations who work in both countries.
Air Pacific’s direct service is being celebrated with the introduction of great year-round return fares starting from FJ$522 all inclusive and available for purchase direct from the airline’s website, reservations centre and various sales offices.
