Following an extensive inspection and analysis of the Labasa airport runway by New Zealand Civil Engineering Company Downer Ltd, Pacific Sun advises that all flights to Labasa airport through Wednesday October 3 are cancelled.
This is to allow Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) and others time to assess the Downer Ltd’s Labasa Airport Inspection Report and determine actions and next steps that will allow resumption of large commercial aircraft operations.
In a statement, the airline said they will issue another update on the situation Monday October 1.
Pacific Sun’s general manager, Shaenaz Voss said, “Like our customers, we are significantly disappointed by this delay in our ability to resume Labasa operations.”
Voss added, “However the safety of our customers, crew, and our aircraft is an uncompromising priority for Pacific Sun, and we cannot resume large commercial aircraft operations until the repaired runway meets international safety and operations standards.”
Pacific Sun will continue to run supplementary services into Savusavu from Suva and Nadi until Labasa airport can resume operations.
However, due to reduced seating capacity on Twin Otter aircraft and daytime-only operations capability at Savusavu, all affected customers are requested to contact the airline’s call centre to change or confirm travel arrangements.
