Announcement Over Airline Impasse Talks Expected Soon

An announcement on the outcomes of talks over Air Service Agreements between Fiji and the Solomon Islands this week in Suva is expected to be announced soon.

The Attorney-General and the Minister for Civil Aviation, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is expected to make an announcement.

A delegation from Solomon Islands arrived in the country this week to try to sort out the issues which have led to suspension of flights between the countries since July.

Press conference
A press conference had been called on Tuesday for the proposed signing of a communiqué but had been called off at the very last minute.

The impasse began mid July when Solomon Islands civil aviation authorities denied a Fiji Airways application for a Saturday flight into Honiara, apparently because of an existing Solomon Airlines flight. When this issue could not be resolved, Fiji retaliated by cancelling all existing Solomon Airlines flights into Nadi.

Solomon Islands reciprocated over Fiji Airways flights into Honiara.
