Fiji Airways has carried about 1,205 tonnes of exports from Fiji in freighter flights between 1st April to 30th June this year.

The exported goods consisted of fresh produce, garments, kava and seafood.

Inbound freight consisted of consignments important to Fijian businesses, as well as almost 52 tonnes of essential medical supplies including vaccines, test kits, medicine and humanitarian aid.

The airline company has also increased its weekly freighter services to up to 10 flights per week.

Freighter services between Nadi and Auckland have increased to up to 3 flights per week, while freighter services between Nadi to Sydney and Nadi to Los Angeles operate up to twice a week.

Weekly freighter services between Nadi to Hong Kong and Nadi to Port Vila remain at one per week.

Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO, Andre Viljoen says they remain committed to dedicated freighter services which are vital to the supply chain for Fiji’s export sector.

Viljoen says freight services keep the economy moving and benefit primary producers, farmers, fisherfolk, workers, exporters, freight forwarders and consumers alike.

Exporters are advised to contact their freight agents for bookings on Fiji Airways freighter flights.
