Fiji Airways and Air India have signed a new codeshare agreement which will provide convenient connections between three Indian cities and Fiji.
From 1 August, guests of both airlines can seamlessly connect from Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai to Fiji via Hong Kong or Singapore.
The agreement will allow Fiji Airways to place its ‘FJ’ designator code on flights operated by Air India from the three Indian cities to Hong Kong and Singapore. It also allows Air India to place its ‘AI’ designator code of Fiji Airways flights from Hong Kong and Singapore to Nadi, Fiji.
Fiji Airways managing director and CEO, Andre Viljoen said: “We’re delighted to add Air India to our growing list of international airline partners, and look forward to welcoming their guests onboard with our renowned hospitality and service onboard.
