Offering major potential for Solomon Islands business, leisure tourism and VFR markets, Solomon Airlines announced today that it will commence operation of a direct Sydney-Honiara service from June 2, 2015, subject to government approval.

Scheduled to operate ex-Honiara on Mondays and ex-Sydney on Tuesdays, the airline will herald the new service with a special AUD599 return fare inclusive of all taxes, in-flight meals and entertainment plus a generous 30 kilo baggage allowance.

Solomon Airlines will utilise its Airbus A320 on the new route which has been specifically timed to offer seamless flight linkage between several Australian cities and also international connections.

These include Canberra, Melbourne and Perth and internationally, for passengers connecting to and from New Zealand, the US, Asia, the Middle East, the UK and Europe.
