A Fiji Airways flight bound for Christmas Island-Honolulu experienced a loss of pressurization due to an engine air-system fault this morning.
The Boeing 737-700, Flight FJ822 was carrying seventy-three passengers and six crew members on board.
Fiji Airways confirms the crew followed standard operating procedures and made a rapid descent to 10,000 feet, and updated Air Traffic control at the Honolulu airport.
Oxygen masks were deployed due to the loss of cabin pressure.
The aircraft is currently on route to Honolulu with a normal landing expected.
The Fiji Airways is closely monitoring the situation and will assist guests in every way possible.
