The two A350-900s will be deployed on existing long-haul services between Fiji, Australia and the U.S., and to provide the opportunity to open additional routes.

Mr. Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways Managing Director & CEO said, “We are extremely pleased with this selection and proud of the confirmed arrangements with Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) Capital as the lessor, and Rolls-Royce as the engine supplier. Our teams are currently customising the aircraft to our specifications, including our world renowned livery and designs which proudly represent the people of Fiji. Ultimately, a luxury, world-class destination, like Fiji, deserves a luxury, world-class travel experience and that’s exactly what these aircraft will deliver. For our guests, the holiday starts the moment they board the aircraft.”
