Fiji Airways has welcomed its fourth Airbus A350-000 to its fleet named the Island of Vatulele, enhancing capacity to and from Australia.
The new aircraft not only brings increased capacity but also marks a significant step towards sustainability. Demonstrating their commitment to a greener future, the inaugural flight of the A350 was flown using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), showcasing their dedication to creating a more environmentally conscious travel industry.
The new A350 aircraft will increase capacity across the airline’s popular destinations including North American long-haul routes, as well as service Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong, providing greater options and connections for Australians.
An additional 30,000 seats per month will be available across the Fiji Airways network thanks to the airline’s two newest A350s.
The modern aircraft features lie-flat beds in Business Class, increased space and comfort in economy, new generation engines for less noise and is made from lightweight materials, to bring a 25% reduction in fuel burn and 20% lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
