Koro Island gets new flight service

The Fiji Airways Group is expanding its domestic network with the introduction of a new flight between Suva and Koro, with services beginning on the February 4, by its subsidiary Fiji Link.

To launch the new weekly Wednesday service, the airline is having a special launch fare of $164 one way, available for purchase via the Fiji Airways website and its Sales Offices.

Fiji Link will operate the service using its 19-seater Twin Otter aircraft to provide a direct flight connection between Suva and Koro Island. The flight will depart Suva at 10.05am for Koro, taking 35-minutes. The return flight departs Koro at 11.25am, arriving in Suva at 12pm.

Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO Stefan Pichler commented: ?We?re grateful that the Government has encouraged this service through the provision of a subsidy, thereby establishing a direct flight link between the Capital and Koro Island.

?This will be of tremendous assistance to the people of Koro to get to Suva, and will also allow those originally from Koro to visit their home island from Viti Levu.?

?Because of accessibility, infrastructure and other determining factors, some remote islands may be more difficult to maintain profitable services to, but by working with the Government, we are able to provide regular air travel to these normally inaccessible destinations.?

Year-round fares for the route start from $190 one way.

Bookings are now available through any Fiji Airways sales office, by calling the reservations centre on +679 672 0888 or +679 330 4388 or online at www.fijiairways.com
