Fiji's international airline, Air Pacific, is increasing the number of flights to Australia, New Zealand, USA and Kiribati as part of its planned growth programme.

Air Pacific has scheduled two additional flights to Christchurch on Sundays and Wednesdays and increased its total weekly flights to Auckland to fourteen.

Flights to Los Angels have increased to five weekly and to Kiribati to twice weekly.

For Australia, weekly flights to Brisbane will increase to eight and Nadi-Sydney will have two extra flights.

Air Pacific's chief executive, John Campbell, says the increases will result in the airline's six-jet fleet operating more than 110 flights weekly providing more than 2-point-3 million seats annually.
