Fiji Airways leases Boeing 737-800 to cover schedules for grounded 737 Max 8

Fiji Airways has leased a Boeing 737-800 from Malaysia’s Malindo Air, to cover schedules due to the extended global grounding of its Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.

Malindo Air will operate flights on behalf of Fiji Airways between Nadi (Fiji) and Brisbane, Sydney, Auckland and Christchurch. The temporary lease arrangement ensures minimum disruption to guests’ travel plans.

The aircraft comes with its own pilots and cabin crew, with a Fiji Airways purser or senior flight attendant on board to oversee the cabin experience.

The first Fiji Airways flight operated by Malindo Air will be a Nadi to Brisbane service on 16th September.
