Fiji Airways new Boeing 737 MAX8.

Get ready international travellers, we are about to fly in the comfort of a Fiji Airways Boeing 737 MAX8.

Customers can look forward to even better comfort ac­cessories and enhancements in flights while travelling on this new Fiji Airways airline.

Our national airline is built around welcoming people to our home, not as passengers, but as members of our extended family.

When you travel with Fiji Airways, you’re not just a seat number; you’re a part of the family.

Fiji Airways will be the first airline in the region to re­ceive and operate the brand new 737 MAX8 on its short and medium haul routes from December, offering an ex­cellent cabin experience with modern in-flight ameni­ties.

A full service product, with business and economy class cabins on investment international flights and above all, its famous Fijian hospitality onboard.

It was a major capital decision, which Fiji Airways managing director and chief executive officer Andre Viljoen earlier noted saying they have followed a rigor­ous, thorough and transparent process to find the right solution.

As a consequence of the fierce competition between the rival bidders and extensive process followed by Fiji Airways, they have achieved a ground-breaking pack­age deal that represents excellent value for Fiji Airways shareholders, customers and stakeholders.

In August a statement from Fiji Airways said it was in the final inspection stages of cabin interiors for the new Boeing 737 MAX8.

Two of five Boeing 737 MAX8s, the statement said, were due to arrive this month, with the remainder of the order expected to be delivered in 2019.

Adelaide, Australia is the destination for the first com­mercial flight for the MAX in December.

Wellington Airport-bound passengers will be the first in New Zealand to experience Fiji Airways’ new Boeing 737 Max8 aircraft when the Wellington to Nadi service is launched next month.

As with all new aircraft types, its crew will undergo familiarisation training before entering into service.

This acquisition is good for the economy. The B737 MAX8 aircraft meets our requirements for efficient per­formance, more engine power, greater economics and a product that will assist us to achieve a good Star Alli­ance and SKYTRAX Rating.
