2 June, 2019

Fiji Airways CEO Andre Viljoen, speaking to CAPA on the sidelines of the 2019 IATA AGM and World Air Transport summit, reported (02-Jun-2019) the airline plans to use its new fleet of A350-900s to serve routes from Nadi to Los Angeles and Sydney. Fiji Airways has committed to leasing two A350-900s for delivery in Nov-2019 and Dec-2019. Los Angeles is served daily with a mix of A330-300s and A330-200s, while Sydney service is operated with A330-300, A330-200 and Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Transitioning to A350-900 operations will enable Fiji Airways to better meet demand for more cargo and passenger capacity.
