Fiji Airways Donates $500,000 to Assist in Tropical Cyclone Recovery

Fiji Airways, Fiji’s national airline, has donated $500,000 to the Prime Minister’s National Disaster Relief and Rehabilitation Fund to assist those affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston. 

The airline has also announced free carriage of relief supplies domestically and inbound from other countries coordinated through the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO).
All Fiji Airways flights have now resumed their normal services from Los Angeles (LAX) and Honolulu (HNL) direct to Nadi (NAN), Fiji and beyond, with international connections to Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands all operating as scheduled. 

Domestic Fiji Link connections within Fiji to popular destinations for U.S. travellers, including Taveuni and Savusavu, are also operating as scheduled.
The donation was warmly welcomed on behalf of the Government by the Attorney General and Minister for Civil Aviation, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum. 

“All Fijians will appreciate this generous gesture by Fiji Airways, which reflects not only its commitment to the welfare of our nation but its sound financial management that has made the donation possible," he said in a written release. "The Government will be working closely with our national airline throughout this crisis, not only making sure that relief supplies get to those who most need it but assisting the tourism industry to get back on its feet.”
