Three airlines in the South Pacific have signed a tripartite codeshare agreement.

Solomon Airlines, the national carrier of the Solomon Islands, has penned a deal with Papua New Guinea’s Air Niugini and Air Vanuatu, the national carrier of Vanuatu, for joint operations on flights between the three countries.

The agreement, which was officially signed by the heads of the three carriers at the Association of South Pacific Airlines (ASPA) AGM in Brisbane, will see the partners codeshare on four weekly flights between Papua’s capital Port Moresby and the Solomons’ capital Honiara, and on the weekly service to Vanuatu’s capital, Port Vila.

The partnership will come into effect on 1 January 2016.

Solomon Airlines CEO, Captain Ron Sumsum, called the agreement a “major boost” for the Melanesian region.
