Air Pacific last week announced that it would postpone services planned for Hong Kong from Fiji for December this year, six months later than originally stated.
Originally planned for the 3rd of June, Nadi to Hong Kong will now take off on the 3rd of December, due to “the downturn in the world economy”.
“Unfortunately, the economic difficulties left us with no option but to make a prudent financial decision that will assist in the long term viability of the route,” said John Campbell, Air Pacific Managing Director.
Air Pacific will use the extra establish fares arrangements with Asian and European carriers for connecting flights for passengers flying onwards from Hong Kong.
Additionally, the extra time will allow Watson Seeto, the newly appointed Air Pacific Asia GM, set up the Hong Kong Air Pacific offices.
