SUVA, Fiji (Fijilive, May 27, 2016) – Fiji Airways and Jetstar today announced an interline agreement that will see the Fijian flag carrier connect to more than 21 destinations on Jetstar’s network from Singapore.

The interline agreement has been signed with the Jetstar Group of branded airlines including Jetstar Airways, Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan and Jetstar Pacific.

Fiji Airways Managing Director and Chief Executive Andre Vilijoen said the interline agreement is an exciting growth phase for the airline’s route of Singapore and it allows them to connect their extensive South Pacific network to Jetstar’s impressive network throughout Asia.

“This interline agreement means our customers will be able to travel seamlessly through Singapore to 21 destinations in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, The Philippines, Cambodia and Myanmar, through Jetstar’s dense network across the Asia Pacific region.”

“Likewise, guests will be able to conveniently experience the wonders of our home, Fiji, and the South Pacific via the Singapore hub,” Mr Viljoen said.

While the agreement covers all 73 destinations served by the Jetstar Group, including Jetstar Airways in Australia, the immediate take-up will be for Jetstar destinations from Singapore.

Singapore based Jetstar Asia Chief Executive Barathan Pasupathi said their services and networks out of Singapore deliver very attractive itineraries for global carriers to offer their customers and such interline and codeshare partnerships with full-service carriers are testament to their product and delivery of an equivalent level of service on board our flights.

The Jetstar-Fiji Airways interline agreement builds on Jetstar’s growing base of 46 established interline partners that include Qantas, Air France-KLM, British Airways, United and China Eastern, just to name a few. Jetstar currently also have existing codeshare agreements with Qantas, Japan Airlines, American Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines, Vietnam Airlines, Finnair, LATAM and Emirates.

Fiji Airways and Jetstar customers will be able to book flights and check-through baggage when purchasing tickets from Fiji Airways’ sales channels, including its website, online travel sites, sales offices and reservation centres. Fiji Airways commenced twice-weekly direct flights to Singapore on April 05, 2016.
