Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline and Alaska Airlines have expanded their partnership by signing a codeshare agreement on flights from San Francisco to two popular US cities.

The codeshare agreement enables Fiji Airways to place its “FJ” code on Alaska Airlines’ flights from SFO to Seattle (SEA) and Portland (PDX), offering Fiji Airways guests seamless connections to these cities via San Francisco, and vice-versa for Alaska Airlines’ guests.

The codeshare flights will be available for sale from March 5th, 2018.

Both airlines have an existing frequent flyer partnership, where members of Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan programme earn and redeem miles for travel on “FJ” flight numbers.

Fiji Airways managing director and chief executive officer Andre Viljoen said the airline was delighted to grow its relationship with Alaska Airlines, a key partner in the North American market.

“This codeshare agreement is a major milestone for Fiji Airways as we continue to grow our network and expand our footprint in the region,” he said.

“Our expanded partnership offers guests on our SFO services excellent connections to both cities with a significant population of residents with Fijian roots. We will now also be able to attract Seattle and Portland residents to our home – Fiji – which is one of the world’s most sought after tourist destinations, as well as the South Pacific.”

Alaska Airlines managing director of alliances Charles Breer said: “Fiji Airways is a fantastic partner of Alaska Airlines, so we’re thrilled to enhance that partnership and provide a hassle-free journey for people connecting to Seattle and Portland.”

“We look forward to welcoming Fiji Airways travelers with genuine, caring service, just as Fiji Airways provides a premium experience for our loyal customers.”

Fiji Airways operates directly from Nadi (Fiji) to San Francisco on Thursday and Sunday all year-round (with three flights a week in January, June, July, August and December).

Fiji Airways also flies daily between Nadi and Los Angeles, and three times a week between Nadi and Honolulu. The airline now has 11 codeshare agreements with partner airlines around the world.
