Route Changes by Air Pacific
Fiji's national carrier Air Pacific is adjusting its route map again. On the chopping block are flights to Vancouver, Canada, being discontinued effective November 30, 2008, and service to Tokyo, Japan, ending on March 31, 2009. The airline claims rising fuel costs and insufficient demand have made these routes uneconomic. What's new is a twice weekly flight from Nadi to Gold Coast/Coolangatta, Australia, which begins in December 2008. In June 2009 Air Pacific will begin flying between Nadi and Hong Kong to tap the increasingly important Chinese tourist market.
