Written By : SUN FIJI NEWSROOM. Air Pacific aircraft are well maintained and safety is paramount in the business said Air Pacific acting chief executive officer Josephine Yee Joy.
On December 29, flight FJ927 bound to the Gold Coast had to return to Fiji after a burning odour was detected in the galley.
The aircraft returned as a precautionary measure approximately 15 minutes after taking off from the Nadi International Airport. Ms Yee Joy said a full aircraft inspection and systems functional checks were performed and no defects were noted.
The 98 passengers were accommodated at hotels in Nadi and were provided with meals and transport.
“Some passengers were accommodated on the Nadi-Brisbane services the same day and others were accommodated on Air Pacific’s Sydney and Brisbane services the next day” said Ms Joy.
