National Aviation Policy to be reviewed

Cabinet has approved the review of the National Aviation Policy to allow for liberalisation of air transport on a case-by-case basis, in the national interest.

The decision to adopt open skies on a case-by-case basis, will be based on careful consideration of economic, strategic, and operational factors.

Chief Executive and Managing Director of Fiji Airways, Andre Viljoen made a presentation to Cabinet on the review of national aviation policy at its meeting in Suva yesterday.

Cabinet also agreed that negotiations be held with the U.S.A. for an open skies framework which will allow Fiji Airways to evaluate operating direct services between Fiji and other U.S. destinations as well as one-stop services from Fiji through the U.S. to a third country.
