FIJI Airways and Finland’s national airline Finnair have agreed on a new codeshare partnership.

Finnair’s AY code will be added to Fiji Airways flights Nadi into to Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo and Narita.

Fiji Airways’ FJ code will be added to Finnair’s flights to Helsinki from Singapore.

The new codeshare partnership between Nadi and Helsinki offers passengers three gateways to access Europe from the Pacific island.

“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,” said le OrvĂ©r, Finnair’s Chief Commercial Officer of Finnair.

Subject to Government’s approval, Finnair hopes its flight numbers will later be added to Fiji’s San Francisco and Los Angeles flights from Nadi to make it possible for customers to complete an around-the-world trip with Finnair flight numbers.

This codeshare will now make it easier for seamless itineraries to open up the Pacific island to passengers from Europe.

“We welcome our fellow Oneworld partner Finnair in our family of codeshare partners,” said Fiji Airways’ Managing Director and CEO Andre Viljoen.
