New airline partnership to attract more UK and European tourists
June 7, 2018 1:14 am
The new partnership between Fiji Airways and British Airways will open up more routes between London and South Pacific than ever before.
British Airways has already begun selling flights between Singapore, Los Angeles and San Francisco and the Fiji gateway of Nadi direct on ba.com.
British Airways Head of Alliances, Rishi Kapoor, says the codeshare will make Fiji more popular with European travellers.
“The new codesharing relationship we are announcing today will make it easier than ever for customers in the UK and Europe to reach this magical part of the world and for all those soldiers serving in the British Army and their families, the rugby players for which the country is famed and feared and all of your wonderful other citizens to travel to our cold part of the world.”
Fiji Airways chief executive, Andre Viljeon says this agreement will make everyone involved in the Fijian tourism to develop the UK market.
“We will work closely with our friends at British Airways to drive bookings and to grow new visitors to Fiji and beyond to the wider South Pacific.”
The new partnership comes days after the National Airline signed up to become oneworld connect partner – a new platform for airlines to link up to the global airline alliance which includes British Airways as a founding member.
