FIJI AIRWAYS AND ETIHAD AIRWAYS SIGN GROUNDBREAKING INTERLINE AGREEMENT

Fiji Airways and Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, today announced a new and far-reaching interline agreement between the two carriers.

This agreement will allow reciprocal sales from and to 12 cities in Europe, 17 cities in the Middle East, 5 cities in Africa, 5 cities in North America, 29 cities in Asia and 3 cities in Australia to and from Fiji. The agreement comes into place with immediate effect and is the starting point of further negotiations between the two airlines.

James Hogan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, said: “Fiji is a great holiday market and we are happy to offer Fiji as an additional destination in our global network. The agreement also connects the outer South Pacific Islands to our network which creates more opportunities for our worldwide sales force. “

Stefan Pichler, Managing Director and CEO of Fiji Airways commented: “We are proud to be part of the global Etihad Airways network and this partnership will help us to put Fiji on the map in countries where we had no presence before. Etihad Airways will help us to reach out for new customers and to diversify tourism streams for our country. It is definitely a major step for Fiji Airways.”

The Fijian Attorney-General and Minister for Tourism, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, has hailed the agreement as an exciting new development for Fiji Airways and the entire Fijian economy. “This opens up a whole new lucrative market for our tourism industry, enabling us to attract affluent visitors from Abu Dhabi - Etihad's base - the other Gulf States, the rest of the Middle East and beyond," he said.


The Minister added that the Fijian Government hopes that this agreement will strengthen both Fiji's national airline and the national economy for the long-term benefit of every Fijian.
