Fiji Airways, along with codeshare partner Alaska Airlines, is looking to strengthen its US network with a number of different routes from its San Francisco hub. With the expansions, passengers of both airlines will be able to connect between the United States and Nadi, Fiji.
The new expansion plan includes cities such as San Diego, Austin, Indianapolis, Washington DC, and Boston, among others. In total, the expansion plan could include up to 19 cities.
Fiji Airways and Alaska Air already have a codeshare agreement for flights between Seattle and Portland to Fiji via San Francisco.
“Our partnership with Alaska Airlines keeps growing from strength to strength,” said Fiji Airways managing Director and CEO Andre Viljoen. “[Alaska Air’s] extensive North American network offers guests from some of the region’s most populous cities a convenient connection to our home – Fiji – and its renowned tourist attractions.
“It’s good for Fiji, Fijian tourism and both airlines. Conversely, our Fijian guests will now enjoy excellent connectivity to these wonderful US cities thanks for this expanded agreement.”
“Extending our codeshare agreement with Fiji Airways in San Francisco means we can offer seamless connections with major U.S. cities including Washington, D.C., Boston and San Diego,” said Alaska Airlines Executive Vice President and CCO Andrew Harrison. “Our loyal customers can look forward to a hassle-free, premium experience travelling to and from the coveted South Pacific islands.”
Members of Alaska Air’s Mileage Plan program will be able to earn and redeem miles for travel on Fiji Airways where codeshares exist. The new codeshare flight offerings are already on sale.
