Aviation Talks Resume

FIJI'S national airline Fiji Airways managing director and CEO, Stefan Pichler is happy about efforts made to lift the suspension flights between Fiji and Solomon Islands.

"We have seen media reports and are of course delighted that efforts are being made towards a resolution to the suspended flights between Fiji and the Solomon Islands," Mr Pichler said.

According to Radio New Zealand, fresh attempts were made yesterday to overcome a three-month aviation row between the two countries.

However, Mr Pichler said questions relating to the Government-level discussions between Fiji and the Solomon Islands would need to be directed to the respective governments.

Direct flights between Nadi and Honiara had been suspended since July. It began when Solomon Islands declined a request by Fiji Airways to add a Saturday flight between the countries.

In earlier reports, Solomon Islands says Solomon Airlines had a scheduled flight on Saturdays while Fiji had alleged there was political interference in the negotiations and Solomon Airlines breached an existing commercial agreement.
