British Airways and Fiji Airways to Codeshare

British Airways and Fiji Airways have signed a codeshare agreement.

As part of the agreement, British Airways is now selling flights between Singapore, Los Angeles and San Francisco and the Fijian gateway of Nadi.

For the customer the partnership means an easy one-stop-shop booking experience and allows them to earn Avios loyalty points on both airlines. Customers can earn Avios points on the Fiji Airways sectors as well as British Airways services and can choose to cut the cost of flights by using Avios in part payment.

Earlier this month, Fiji Airways signed up to become the first oneworld connect partner - a new platform for airlines to link up to the global airline alliance which includes British Airways as a founding member. British Airways is one of Fiji Airways oneworld connect sponsors enabling customers to enjoy more services and benefits when flying on either airline.

Rishi Kapoor, British Airways Head of Alliances, said, We are delighted to be partnering with Fiji Airways and welcoming them into the oneworld family. We believe the start of this codeshare will make Fiji even more popular with European travellers by offering them a more attractive route network and a comfortable and seamless travel experience. Fijians are known around the globe for giving visitors the warmest of welcomes, so we look forward to giving them an equally warm welcome onboard our flights very soon.

Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways Managing Director & CEO of Fiji Airways, said, We are extremely proud to embark on a codeshare with British Airways to give travellers from the UK convenient access to our home - Fiji, one of the worlds most sought after tourism destinations. This is particularly significant for us as British Airways is our third oneworld sponsor, just days out from our accession into the alliance as a oneworld connect airline. Given the close historical ties between Fiji and Britain, and with thousands of Fijians serving in the British Army, our partnership will make it easier for families and friends to visit each other.

Fiji Airways operates international and domestic services to 12 countries and 31 cities, including Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Vanuatu and Solomon Islands, the US, Hong Kong and Singapore.
