Fiji Airways, Finnair agree on codeshare


FIJI Airways and Finland’s national airline Finnair have agreed on a new codeshare partnershi­p.

Finnair’s AY code will be added to Fiji Airways flights Nadi to Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo and Narita.

Fiji Airways’ FJ code will be added to Finnair’s flights to Helsinki from Singapore.

The new codeshare partnershi­p between Nadi and Helsinki offers passengers three gateways to access Europe from the Pacific Island nation.

“This co-operation is unique as it will allow Finnair customers to purchase around-theworld routings under Finnair’s code for the very first time,” said le Orvér, Finnair’s chief commercial officer of Finnair.

Subject to Government’s approval, Finnair hopes its flight numbers will later be added to Fiji’s San Francisco and Los Angeles flights from Nadi to make it possible for customers to complete an around-theworld trip with Finnair flight numbers.

This codeshare will now make it easier for seamless itinerarie­s to open up to passengers from Europe.

“We welcome our fellow Oneworld partner Finnair in our family of codeshare partners,” said Fiji Airways’ managing director and CEO Andre Viljoen.
