Fiji flights to Fiji will resume in early 2019

Fiji Airlines will resume flights to Fijian destinations in 2019, after the carrier was unable to get permission to fly due to the government shutdown.

Fiji Airlines said that flights will resume to the island nation on January 19.

“We are pleased to announce that we are able to resume the scheduled services for Fiji Airways, on January 13, 2019, following a lapse in the government’s approval for the renewal of flights,” Fiji Airways said in a statement.

Fijian Airways has been in negotiations with the government to renew flights since last year.

The carrier had said in December that it would only be able to fly to Fiji if it obtained permission from the government.

Fujian Airways will resume all flights from March 17 to April 9, 2019.
