Hong Kong Airlines and Fiji Airways have signed a codeshare agreement to give passengers increased connectivity and connection between major destinations in the South Pacific and Asia.

Under the agreement, Fiji Airways flights between Hong Kong, China and Nadi, Fiji, as well as Nadi and Auckland, New Zealand will operate with a Kong Kong Airlines flight number. Reversely, Hong Kong Airlines flights between Hong Kong and Bangkok, Thailand and Tokyo, Japan and Osaka, Japan will operate under Fiji Airways flight numbers.

“The commencement of our partnership with Fiji Airways is good news for passengers of both airlines. Our passengers now have a new choice to enjoy the white sandy beaches and aesthetically pleasing islands of Fiji under an all-year-round sunny weather,” said Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer. “Meanwhile, we are excited to welcome more new friends from Fiji onboard Hong Kong Airlines’ flight to explore the bustling contemporary city of Hong Kong which embodies the unique ‘east-meets-west’ culture.”

“We’re delighted to have an excellent partner, Hong Kong Airlines, to help expand our footprint in Northeast Asia. This is a key part of our growth and presence in the region, and the three destinations are welcome additions to our network,” said Andre Viljoen, Managing Director and CEO of FIJI Airways. “The arrangement will allow through check-in of customers and their luggage all the way to their final destinations, offering convenient transit options in Kong Kong and Nadi. We look forward to welcoming more Asian travelers to our home, Fiji, one of the world’s most sought after tourist destinations.”

Flight tickets between Hong Kong and Nadi, as well as Nadi and Auckland, can be purchased now through both airlines. Tickets for flights between Hong Kong and Bangkok, or Tokyo and Osaka, will start later this month.
