The Fiji information ministry says the Fiji Airways Group has reported a record operating profit for the first half of this year.

It says the unaudited interim results shows a more than nine million US dollar profit.

The carrier's managing director, Stefan Pichler, has attributed the increase to higher load factors, more efficient cost management, streamlined management structures and a highly motivated staff.
