Fiji Link has added a new requirement to their health and safety measures as the containment borders are expected to be opened soon.
Managing Director and CEO of Fiji Airways, Andre Viljoen says passengers will now need to present their vaccination card when boarding any domestic flight.
However, exemptions will be in place for passengers under the age of 18, and those passengers above 18 exempted from vaccination carrying written permission from the Ministry of Health (or equivalent health authority).
Viljoen says this is based on medical advice.
“As you know we have been leading and pioneering travel-ready protocols and we have an award-winning health and safety program and that’s required masks right from day one when COVID started.”
He says this is important for the safety of passengers.
Viljoen says Fiji Link is ready to take off and once the green light is given they will start flying.
Prior to the shutdown of domestic flights in April 2021, Fiji Link had already mandated masks on board for all passengers, as well as a requirement for temperature checking and having the careFIJI app installed on personal devices.
To further reduce contact and give customers peace of mind, Fiji Link has also enabled self-scanning of printed or digital (mobile) boarding passes at the Boarding Gate.
