HONIARA, Solomon Islands โ€“ Solomon Airlines has announced it will commence operation of a new direct Honiara-Nadi service effective Wednesday, 04 November 2015, subject to government approval.

The national carrier will utilise its flagship Airbus A320 on the route which is scheduled to operate ex-Honiara on Wednesdays and ex-Nadi on Thursdays.

Timings as follow:

Flight IE 708 operating Wednesday, departs Honiara at 1515 arriving Nadi at 2015*

Flight IE 709 operating Thursday, departs Nadi at 1100 arriving Honiara at 1200*

The new service builds on the national carrierโ€™s existing Honiara – Nadi service which operates via Port Vila, Vanuatu, on Saturdays and returns to Honiara, again via Port Vila, on Sundays.

This new flight path represents a further expansion of Solomon Airlines international network in recent months, the carrier having commenced a direct Sydney-Honiara service in June.

Solomon Airlines General Manager Operations & Commercial, Gus Kraus said the commencement of the new Honiara-Nadi service held great significance for the prospect of increased trade and business links between the two countries as well as a closer relationship with a key Melanesian neighbor.

โ€œAs importantly, this new direct service opens up even more opportunity for international travellers to make seamless connections via Fiji into the Solomon Islands, and particularly from North America and northern Asia,โ€ he said.

โ€œThis new service represents yet another major benchmark for Solomon Airlines in a very proud 53-year history.โ€
