The National Carrier
NATIONAL carrier Solomon Airlines has increased its flights between Honiara and Brisbane to five days a week commencing the week of 11th November.
Solomon Airlines General Manager Operations & Commercial, Gus Kraus says the added service is to assist in increased demand for travel leading up to and including Christmas.
To mark its five days a week service Solomon Airlines has introduced special airfares for its Honiara to Brisbane service. Specials are also being introduced from Brisbane to Honiara return.
“We are rewarding our customers with discounted airfares from 1 November for a limited period. Our special prices have dropped for a limited period with airfares being far cheaper than our regular airfares but naturally, have conditions and limited availability.”
The specials from Honiara to Brisbane are now running at $3499 including tax. Travel is valid from 1 November 2013 to 16 December 2013 and from 20 January 2014 to 27 February 2014.
“As the national carrier, Solomon Airlines is making it easier and cheaper for Solomon Islanders and others to fly overseas and we need to address additional flying with night facilities in the domestic airports so that we can also pass some cost advantages by way of special fares in the domestic market.”
Kraus added that the new flight schedule reflects the Airline’s response to the public demand for Christmas travel and hopefully the 5th service will again be re-introduced in June 2014 after ending in February’ 14
From the 11th November, Solomon Airlines will fly to Brisbane on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday on its Airbus A320 with Saturday being the odd service from Brisbane amongst other days having return flights.
The airline also provides services to Port Vila and Nadi on the weekends.
