The domestic and regional subsidiary of Fiji Airways, Fiji Link has taken delivery of its first brand new ATR 72-600 on operating lease from Singapore-based aircraft leasing company Avation PLC.

The acquisition of the new 68-seat ATR 72-600 will allow the Fiji Airways Group to enhance connectivity over Fiji's larger domestic ports Nadi, Suva and Labasa, while boosting frequency of flights to other Pacific island destinations.

The new aircraft will be based at Suva airport where Fiji Link is about to start its first full program of flying to Fiji' existing domestic and regional destinations while commencing flights on a new route Suva-Apia.

Stefan Pichler, Fiji Airways Group Managing Director and CEO said, These increases in frequency and capacity demonstrate our commitment to build a global, connected network. This larger capacity modern ATR turboprop comes in the right moment in the airline's new operational schedule.
