Air Pacific Announces Latest Schedule for Tuesday December 18 (schedule reflects latest weather and airfield updates)

Air Pacific wishes to advise passengers of its latest flight schedules for Tuesday, December 18th—following an update on airfield conditions and weather from Fijian authorities.

As noted previously, only two services originally scheduled for Tuesday (flights to Nukualofa and Honiara-via Vila) have been cancelled as a result of Tropical Cyclone Evan and its subsequent impact to the airline’s flight schedules.

The following flights will now operate on slightly revised times (as noted below)(in general departure times have moved 30-90 minutes from previous announced schedule)

• FJ 416 (a supplementary Auckland – Nadi flight) will operate from Auckland to assist disrupted customers seeking to fly to Fiji.
o The additional flight will depart Auckland at 0930 local time, arriving in Nadi at 1235 local time.
This is a return leg of Sunday’s supplementary Nadi – Auckland service which flew at full capacity (162 passengers) and assisted visitors who wanted to leave Fiji before Tropical Cyclone Evan hit the country.
• FJ 412 Auckland – Nadi,
o Will now depart Auckland Tuesday at 0930 local time and arrive in Nadi at 1235 local time.
• FJ 410 (now FJ 1410) Auckland – Nadi,

Please note that Air Pacific’s Call Centre is currently experiencing extremely high call volumes due to the effects of Tropical Cyclone Evan. Thus, passengers are requested to check Air Pacific’s website for additional updates before attempting to contact the call centre.

Passengers on affected flights who need to speak to a call centre agent or who need additional information beyond what is published on the Air Pacific web site are advised to call the Pacific Sun call centre at +679 6720888 or +679 3304388.
