Finnair and Fiji Airways have agreed on a new codeshare partnership between Helsinki (HEL) and Nadi (NAN) in Fiji via three gateways served by Finnair. Finnair’s AY code will be added to Fiji Airways’ flights between Hong Kong (HKG), Singapore (SIN), Narita (NRT) and Nadi, offering an exotic new destination for Finnair customers in the South Pacific.
Finnair’s flight numbers will later be added to Fiji’s flights between San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX) and Nadi, subject to applicable government approvals. With this addition, it will now be possible for Finnair customers to complete an around-the-world trip with Finnair flight numbers.
Fiji Airways’ FJ code will also be added to Finnair’s flights to Helsinki via Singapore, opening access for Fiji Airways’ customers to Finland and points beyond in Europe.
The new codeshare flights can now be booked on Finnair.com, for travel starting from October 27, 2019, onwards.
“We are excited about this cooperation with Fiji Airways and are delighted to offer this wonderful new destination in the South Pacific to our customers,” says Ole Orvér, Chief Commercial Officer at Finnair. “This cooperation is unique as it will allow Finnair customers to purchase around-the-world routings under Finnair’s code for the very first time, using a combination of gateways in Asia and on the US West Coast. We would also like to warmly welcome Fiji Airways’ customers to enjoy the wonders of Finland and the Nordics.”
“We welcome our fellow oneworld partner Finnair in our family of codeshare partners,” says Mr. Andre Viljoen, Managing Director and CEO of Fiji Airways. “Through this partnership, we are adding the wonderful city of Helsinki to our network, making Fiji and the entire South Pacific more accessible for Finnair customers. We look forward to working with Finnair and introducing Finnair customers to Fiji, one of the world’s most welcoming and authentic cultures.”
