Qantas seeks three more weekly 737 services on Fiji route

May 28, 2019 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Qantas is seeking an extra 528 seats a week on the Fiji route.

The airline has applied to the International Air Services Commission (IASC) seeking the capacity on the following basis:

  • the allocation is requested for a period of five years from the date of the determination;
  • the capacity will be fully utilised by 31 March 2020;
  • the capacity may be utilised by Qantas or another Australian carrier which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qantas; and
  • the capacity may be used by Qantas to provide joint services with any wholly-owned subsidiary and by any wholly-owned subsidiary of the Qantas Group to provide joint services with Qantas.

In a letter to the IASC accompanying its application, Qantas said it wanted the extra capacity for the Northern Winter scheduling season, starting 27 October 2019.

Qantas plans to operate the flights between Australia and Fiji using B737 aircraft. For flexibility, the ability has been requested for a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qantas, such as Jetstar Airways, to use the capacity.

In accordance with section 12 of the International Air Services Commission Act 1992, the IASC has invited other applications for the capacity.
