Fiji Airways has appointed Swissport its New Zealand ground handling partner for an additional three years, providing full ramp and passenger services.
Commencing 16 December 2021, Swissport supports daily flights from Auckland to Fiji (Nadi) utilising the Airbus A330 aircraft, three flights a week from Christchurch on its Boeing 737 Max, and two flights a week from Wellington utilising its Boeing 737 MAX.
“We are delighted to extend our relationship with Fiji’s national carrier,” said Brad Moore, Swissport’s Managing Director Australasia.
“We have supported Fiji Airways for several years in New Zealand and are honoured to be playing a bigger role in the restart of flying between the two countries, helping, reunite families and re-open the popular leisure market.
“This extension further cements our reputation as the region’s highest quality and safest domestic and international ground handler.”
Fiji Airways Managing Director & CEO Mr Andre Viljoen said: ”As we eagerly await Kiwis looking to travel to Fiji and Fijians looking to travel once entry requirements are eased in the new year, we expect to ramp up our flights from Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington quite significantly.
“We’re delighted to extend our partnership with Swissport in this lead-up towards the return of leisure and business travel between New Zealand and Fiji.”
