This is about a deal which would both help Samoa reestablish its own national flag carrier, and provide work for Fiji Airways, including increased aircraft utilisation.
Shaenaz Voss, Fiji Airways Executive General Manager Corporate Affairs, confirmed an agreement in principal. But she said they were unable to release further details yet.
“We have an agreement in principal with the Samoan Government to assist them with support for their new national airline,” she said.
“The exact nature of this support is still subject to negotiation.”
