Fiji Airways and Air India have entered into a pact, which will provide convenient connections between three cities of India – Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai and the South Pacific nation. The codeshare partnership between the two carriers will come into effect from this month, Air India said in a release.
The deal will allow Fiji Airways to place its FJ flight code on flights operated by Air India from three domestic cities to Hong Kong and Singapore, and in turn, it will allow Air India to place its AI designator code on Fiji Airways flights from Hong Kong and Singapore to Nadi, the release said. Starting from 1 August, passengers of the two airlines can seamlessly connect from Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai to Fiji via Hong Kong or Singapore, it said.
“We have now established codeshare partnership with Fiji Airways, thereby expanding our network and offering wider connectivity to our passengers,” said Meenakshi Mallik, commercial director of Air India.
“Our guests from Fiji and the South Pacific will have many more options to connect to Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai for leisure, business and medical travel on Air India flights,” said Andre Viljoen, managing director and chief executive of Fiji Airways.
