Fiji Airways has rebranded its regional airline, Pacific Sun, following the delivery of the first aircraft bearing the company’s new name, Fiji Link.

Fiji Link’s first new ATR72-600 turboprop aircraft was delivered by Singapore-based aircraft leasing company Aviation Plc this week.

The new 68-seat aircraft will replace the airline’s older 44-seat ATR42-500s, offering extra capacity on routes to Fiji’s larger domestic ports of Nadi, Suva and Labasa, and Pacific island destinations including Samoa and Tonga. A second new ATR72-600 is also due to join the Fiji Link fleet in the coming weeks.

“These increases in frequency and capacity demonstrate our commitment to build a global, connected network,” said Stefan Pichler, Fiji Airways’ managing director & CEO.

“This larger capacity modern ATR turboprop comes in the right moment in the airline’s new operational schedule. Only six months after the announcement of the airline’s fleet optimisation and restructuring fueled by the growth in domestic and regional traffic in the past years, Fiji Link is ready to offer its customers more choice and flexibility of flights, as well as unparalleled passenger comfort.”

The rebranding of Pacific Sun to Fiji Link comes a year after Fiji’s main national carrier, Air Pacific was renamed Fiji Airways.
