Fiji Airways has extended the suspension of all
international scheduled flights until the end of July, at the
The airline had hoped to be able to resume
international services this month, but prolonged
border closures and travel restrictions caused by the
ongoing COVID19 pandemic have forced the airline to reconsider.
In addition to cargo, the airline will continue to operate a limited
number of domestic Fiji Link services.
Mr. Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways Managing Director
and CEO, said, ďGiven that there is still next to no demand for
international air travel in the region, regrettably, we have been
forced to cancel our July schedules, with further reductions
expected in August 2020. Most of our international fleet remains
in storage, except for aircraft utilised for freighter services.
These services are keeping vital supply lines open between Fiji
and its key trading partners. Border restrictions will need to
ease in order for travel demand to return and international
services to resume.Ē
Fiji Airways has said that is contacting customers who are
booked to travel in July.
People who booked through travel agents and
other third parties should be contacted by those parties, or
contact them directly.
