Fiji Airways plane.Fiji Airways, Fiji’s national airline, has donated F$1m to the Prime Minister’s National Disaster Relief and Rehabilitation Fund to assist those affected by Cyclone Winston. Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO, Andre Viljoen, handed the check over today to Fijian Prime Minister, Rear Admiral (Ret’d) Hon. Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama. The airline has also announced free carriage of relief supplies domestically and inbound from other countries coordinated through the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO).

 

All Fiji Airways flights have now resumed their normal services from Los Angeles (LAX) and Honolulu (HNL) direct to Nadi (NAN), Fiji, and beyond, with international connections to Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands all operating as scheduled. Domestic Fiji Link connections within Fiji to popular destinations for U.S. travellers, including Taveuni and Savusavu, are also operating as scheduled.

 

The Attorney General and Minister for Civil Aviation, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, said the Government, through Tourism Fiji, is working with Fiji Airways and industry stakeholders on a comprehensive plan to maintain the health of the industry in the wake of Cyclone Winston. “We need to get the message out to our key markets that most Fijian resorts are open and functioning. The best way for travellers to support Fiji through this crisis is to keep visiting us. There is no need for intending holidaymakers to cancel or postpone their visits,” the AG said.
