All international Fiji Airways flights have been suspended to the end of June amidst the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The national airline expects to reduce its July scheduled services as flight demands are low.
Fiji Airways CEO Andre Viljoen said that any resumption of flights will depend on border restrictions and return of demand.
“We totally understand measures placed by Governments to protect borders.”
“While the near-term outlook remains bleak, we remain flexible and will be ready to launch services as soon as practical. The extension by a month is a difficult but necessary decision, given the uncertainty surrounding the June operating environment.”
“Airlines around the world are adjusting schedules accordingly. We will continue to assess the situation and may reduce July capacity further if required. The outlook remains bleak, and we are preparing for the worst while hoping for the best,” Viljoen said.
Customers affected by the suspension will be advised by Fiji Airways and travel agencies.
