Melanesia Codeshare to Commence in July

Effective 01 July 2016, some of Melanesia's National Carriers; Solomon Airlines, Air Niugini and Air Vanuatu will commence operation of a long awaited codeshare service linking all three destinations.

The new service will operate from Port Moresby to Honiara on Fridays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Ex-Honiara the codeshare service will operate from Honiara to Port Moresby on Saturdays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The codeshare also extends to a weekly Honiara-Port Vila-Honiara service into Bauerfield International Airport, Port Vila, operating ex-Honiara on Tuesdays and returning to Honiara on Wednesdays.

Solomon Airlines General Manager Operations & Commercial, Gus Kraus said the benefits of all three airlines working in unison presented a major boost for the Melanesian region’s tourism and business aspirations.

“This codeshare agreement can also be seen as a considerable advancement of the ideals contained within the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) mandate and will play a key role in further promoting MSG principals,” Mr Kraus said.
