Fiji is in the process of reviewing its air services agreement with India, which dates back to 1970.

Mr. Yogesh J Karan, Fiji’s High Commissioner to India, told The Hindu newspaper last week that Fiji Airways was looking to acquire a codesharing agreement with Jet Airways and Air India to fly from Singapore to Indian cities.

“The review seeks to give us options for codesharing agreement with our national airlines,” he said.

A codeshare agreement is an aviation business arrangement where two or more airlines share the same flight.

Earlier reports indicated the Papua New Guinea government had approached Fiji Airways in relations to having a code sharing agreement with routes such as Asia.

Mr. Shane Hussein, Manager Public Relations of Fiji Airways, told Newswire they were unable to comment on potential codeshare arrangements.

Mr. Hussein added it were governments who discussed Air Services Agreements.
