He says they have to replace a few parts which they are sourcing from Airbus and once replaced, they will test the aircraft.

In terms of payment of damage, Viljoen adds this will be handled by insurance.

It’s understood that an Asiana Airlines aircraft hit a Fiji Airways elevator, which collided with the four-year-old aircraft.
