Pacific Sun continued its outstanding on-time performance, reporting 92.8% in February, compared to 94.1% in January and 93.5% in December.
Stefan Pichler, Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO commented: “I’m happy with our performance for February, considering the adverse weather conditions we face in the Fiji storm season. Weather and technical aircraft issues drove our results for February, however continued diligence by our entire team kept disruptions to a minimum. In the past 6 months (September 2013 – February 2014), Fiji Airways has had an average on-time performance of 82.5%, while Pacific Sun has had an average of 92.7%. This shows that both airlines are tracking well above industry standards.”
