Fiji Airways to use incoming A350-900s to serve routes to Los Angeles and Sydney

    Fiji Airways CEO Andre Viljoen, speaking to CAPA on the sidelines of the 2019 IATA AGM and World Air Transport summit, reported (02-Jun-2019) the airline plans to use its new fleet of A350-900s to serve routes from Nadi to Los Angeles and Sydney. Fiji Airways has committed to leasing two A350-900s for delivery in Nov-2019 and Dec-2019. Los Angeles is served daily with a mix of A330-300s and A330-200s, while Sydney service is operated with A330-300, A330-200 and Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Transitioning to A350-900 operations will enable Fiji Airways to better meet demand for more cargo and passenger capacity.
