Air Pacific will reboot on Fiji Airways and unveil the new livery
Before I tell you about the newl Fiji Airways livery from the new Airbus A330-200 aircraft, I will enter the history of the Air Pacific airline shortly.
In 1951, the first Fiji Airways registered aircraft operated the first official flight. It was a twin-engine Dragon Rapide plane and took off from the airport in Suva, Fiji. 20 years later, in 1971, Fiji Airways changed its name to Air Pacific because several countries near Fiji - Tonga, Nauru, Kiribati and Solomon Islands - invested in the regional airline, along with two other big ones. carriers - Qantas and Air New Zealand.
In June 2013, Air Pacific will reintroduce the Fiji Airways brand to strengthen the airline's position in the Fiji area. Currently, the government of Fiji holds 51% of Air Pacific shares and Qantas operator owns 46.32%. The other shareholders - Air New Zealand and the governments of Kiribati, Tonga, Nauru and Samoa - hold very few percent.
Yesterday the new one was presented livery Fiji Airways. This stage is part of the restructuring and rebranding process for Air Pacific. Fiji Airways aircraft are new and benefit from the most modern eco technologies. They come equipped with Rolls Royce Trent 700 engines with low CO2 emissions. On board the passengers will be able to enjoy the most modern Panasonic entertainment systems. Air Pacific officials said they want to make Fiji Airways a first-class brand.
Fiji Airways will operate 3 Airbus A330-200 aircraft, two A330 are scheduled to arrive in May 2013 and the third aircraft in November 2013. The complete rebranding will be done by the end of 2013. The new A330-200 will replace the current Boeing 747-400 aircraft.
Currently, Air Pacific operates flights to 17 destinations in Fiji, Australia, Asia and North America.
