Solomon Airlines has announced it will commence operation of a new direct Honiara-Nadi service effective Wednesday November 4.

This is still subject to Government approval.

The Solomon Islands’ national carrier will utilise its flagship Airbus A320 on the route which is scheduled to operate ex-Honiara on Wednesdays and ex-Nadi on Thursdays.

The new service builds on the national carrier’s existing Honiara – Nadi service which operates via Port Vila, Vanuatu, on Saturdays and returns to Honiara, again via Port Vila, on Sundays.

This new flight path represents a further expansion of Solomon Airlines international network in recent months, the carrier having commenced a direct Sydney-Honiara service in June.

Solomon Airlines General Manager Operations & Commercial, Gus Kraus said the commencement of the new Honiara-Nadi service held great significance.

This, he said, was for the prospect of increased trade and business links between the two countries as well as a closer relationship with a key Melanesian neighbour.

“As importantly, this new direct service opens up even more opportunity for international travellers to make seamless connections via Fiji into the Solomon Islands, and particularly from North America and northern Asia,” he said.

“This new service represents yet another major benchmark for Solomon Airlines in a very proud 53-year history.”
