AIR PACIFIC LAUNCHES DIRECT SUVA – PORT VILA SERVICE
Nadi - Air Pacific, Fiji’s International Airline has added a direct Suva - Port Vila service to its international network. The non-stop, once-a-week direct service on Sundays between the capitals of Fiji and Vanuatu will be operated by the airline’s wholly owned subsidiary Pacific Sun using its forty-two seat ATR42-500 aircraft.
The move is in line with the airline’s commitment to catering for the demands of its customers. The new direct service provides reduced travel times for customers and increases the number of travel options between the two cities to three days a week.
“We heard the request from our customers loud and clear, and we’re delighted to now offer direct service between Suva and Port Vila,” said Dave Pflieger, CEO & Managing Director of Air Pacific.
“We’re confident our weekly direct service will be tremendously beneficial to regional students, academics, and of course the many regional and inter-government organisations who work in both countries.”
Air Pacific’s direct service is being celebrated with the introduction of great year-round return fares starting from FJD522 / VUV20500 all inclusive and available for purchase direct from the airline’s website, Reservations Centre, and various Sales Offices.
The return fare of F$522, which is available year-round, is 30% cheaper than two one-way fares. It includes a light meal, beverages, and a baggage allowance of 23 kg on board the 42-seater ATR aircraft.
The first direct flight between the two capitals is scheduled for Sunday 16th September. The three-hour flight will operate weekly departing Suva on Sundays at 9:30am and arriving in Port Vila at 11.30am. It will depart Port Vila on its return journey to Suva on Sundays at 12.15pm, arriving in Suva at 4:05pm. Other international connections are from Nadi.
