The Press - Escape - - FRONT PAGE -

Fiji Air­ways is boost­ing its New Zealand sched­ule with the ad­di­tion of 14 ex­tra flights from Christchurch to Fiji dur­ing the peak sea­son.

Al­ready, tens of thou­sands of South Is­landers fly out of Christchurch Air­port to Fiji ev­ery year and these ex­tra flights mean many more will do that, too.

The sup­ple­men­tary flights will op­er­ate be­tween June and De­cem­ber 2016 on Thurs­days. The new ser­vices, on top of Fiji Air­ways’ per­ma­nent Tues­day and Satur­day ser­vices, of­fer a num­ber of hol­i­day op­tions – from a quick get­away, a 10-day stop or even longer, to Fiji, the South Pa­cific and on to North Amer­ica

Con­versely, as Christchurch is the gate­way to the South Is­land, Christchurch Air­port and the city will be wel­com­ing even more vis­i­tors who fly in to take ad­van­tage of the ski sea­son, or visit friends and fam­ily.

The new flights are on sale now and of­fer travel op­tions in both busi­ness and econ­omy class on the B737-800 air­craft.
