Air New Zealand says it will start flying a Dreamliner to Fiji from Auckland next summer.
The New Zealand Herald reports the airline will use the Boeing 787-9 on the Nadi route from November to March, adding 8000 more seats than last year.
The Dreamliner will initially operate two new services per week building to five during the peak mid-December to late January period.
There will also be an extra weekly Airbus A320 service added to the summer schedule to meet passenger demand.
It will be the first time its Dreamliner has operated in the Pacific Islands.
Air New Zealand chief sales and commercial officer Cam Wallace says Fiji continued to be a hugely popular destination for Kiwis with the number of Kiwis travelling there growing steadily during the past three years.
