Post Fiji Starts Selling Pacific Blue Flights

Travel News Asia Friday, 23 February 2007

Post Fiji outlets across the Pacific nation begin selling Pacific Blue flights to and from Fiji from today giving Fiji locals easier access to Pacific Blues affordable fares.

Pacific Blue launched flights to Fiji in September 2004 and until now, the only method of purchasing flights was via the Internet using a credit card or from travel agents or Pacific Blue/Air Fiji Ground Handling team members at the airport.

The new arrangement means locals will now be able to visit Post Fiji and book and pay for their Pacific Blue flights to Australia with the option of using cash notes and coins or a credit card.

Its expected to make the purchase of Pacific Blue flights much easier for the Fiji community, following feedback that many were disadvantaged as they didnt have use of a credit card or a computer. It will also bring Pacific Blue flights within reach of those living in many of the smaller communities who may not have credit cards or local travel agents and who dont want to travel up to 200 kilometres by road to Suva or Nadi to book an international flight. They will now be able to visit their local Post Fiji outlet.

Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey said, Internet and credit card use is low in the Fiji region and we are confident our new relationship with Post Fiji will allow more Fijian locals to take advantage of the affordable fares Pacific Blue has to offer.

Since Pacific Blues entry, the number of people travelling between Fiji and Australia and vice versa has grown by 142,000 passengers, marking an increase of 36%. Pacific Blue currently offers ten direct flights a week from Australia to Fiji.
