Air Pacific has launched direct flights between
Fiji and Hong Kong. Air Pacific operates 108 flights to 18 cities
in 12 countries. With the Hong Kong new route coming into
operation, and through its codeshare partnership with Cathay
Pacific, its network now covers South-east Asia, the UK and
Director and Chief Executive Officer of Air Pacific, Mr John
Campbell said, "Hong Kong International Airport is an airport that
has consistently been ranked amongst the best in the world. Its
location has long been regarded as a natural gateway to China,
with unrivalled access to markets on the Mainland and increasingly
seen as a springboard for investors from overseas enterprises
wishing to expand globally, is ideal for Air Pacific that is
targeting overseas markets using Hong Kong as a transit hub."
There will be 2 weekly flights between Fiji and Hong Kong on
Thursdays and Saturdays. Air Pacific's flight FJ391 (Nadi to Hong
Kong) departs from Nadi, Fiji's International Airport at 0830
hours and arrives at Hong Kong International Airport at
approximately 1345 hours. The return flight, FJ392 (Hong Kong to Nadi) departs Hong Kong International Airport at 1545 hours and
arrives at Nadi, Fiji's International Airport at 0645 hours.
Air Pacific is a full service carrier providing
passengers with complimentary meals, beverages and in-flight
entertainment complimented by Fijian hospitality. Air Pacific with its
codeshare partners carries 70% of the total number of visitors to Fiji.
To support the airline's expansion in the region, a new office in
Hong Kong was set up earlier this year to manage strategic marketing
and sales partnership in Hong Kong, China and the South-east Asia.
Newly appointed General Manager, Asia for Air Pacific, Mr.
Watson Seeto said, "We are looking forward to providing more
choices for customers flying between Hong Kong and Fiji with our
new services. Air Pacific is committed to attracting visitors from
Fiji to Hong Kong and connecting them to the rest of the world."
"In joint marketing campaigns with Tourism Fiji and related
partners, the Air Pacific Hong Kong operational team will identify
and secure key segments. With support from the corporate operation
in Fiji, the Hong Kong operation will play an active role in
capturing opportunities using Hong Kong as the ideal strategic
location for expanding and capturing the growing opportunities in
the region. The choice of Hong Kong is a tribute to its dynamism
and its well-earned position as Asia's World City," he added.
