SERVICE AGREEMENT

SUVA, Fiji (December 7, 1997 - PACNEWS)---Fiji's national airline, Air Pacific, is seeking authority to increase flights from Nadi to Australian cities under a new air services agreement being negotiated by the Fiji and Australian governments.

The airline's general manager for corporate affairs, Ramendra Narayan, says the proposals also call for Air Pacific's planes to be authorized to fly out of Australian airports to other destinations, including Asian cities, Radio Fiji reports.

The proposals put forward by the Fiji government to Australia, in addition, include "fly-beyond" rights, that would permit Air Pacific to pick up passengers in Australia for travel to destinations other than Fiji.

The next round of negotiations on the air agreement plan is scheduled for early next year.

Narayan is confident both governments will sign the new agreement, as Australia, he says, has responded positively to Fiji's proposals.
