Named the Island of Beqa, the new aircraft is the third A350 to join Fiji Airways’ modern fleet of 20 aircrafts. Fiji’s national carrier is currently the only airline to be operating the spacious and energy-efficient Airbus A350 aircrafts direct from New Zealand to Fiji.
Auckland residents will now be able to experience the state-of-the-art A350 direct to Fiji, with the aircraft scheduled to fly from Auckland up to four times a week.
The Island of Beqa will also fly to Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Vancouver, providing Kiwis with more convenient connections to destinations across the globe.
Fiji Airways managing director and CEO, Andre Viljoen says the carrier is now in a stronger position to explore new destinations.
Some possibilities Fiji Airways is exploring for the future include Dallas, Seattle, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul and also Noumea, Wallis, Rarotonga, Port Moresby and several additional destinations in Australia.
