Solomon Airlines flights to resume tomorrow

Solomon Airlines plans to resume all international and domestic services from tomorrow following a sudden suspension of services on Tuesday.

The airline will run one international flight today from the Pacific island nation’s capital of Honiara to Brisbane in Australia before full international and domestic flights recommence.

The carrier will also resume all services provided to all other airlines using Henderson international airport in its capacity as ground handling agent.

Chief executive Ron Sumsum said Solomon Airlines “unreservedly apologised” for any inconvenience the situation had caused the airline’s passengers, its codeshare partners and other international carriers and their passengers.

Services were grounded in a row with the Solomans government, reported locally to be the result of millions of dollars of unpaid government arrears which compromised the airline’s operations.

The airline’s international network from the South Pacific archipelago to the east of Papua New Guinea includes Brisbane, Nadi in Fiji and Port Vila in Vanauatu plus 24 domestic destinations.

Sumsum had said the decision to suspend flights, due to a dispute with the Solomon Islands’ government, had not been taken lightly.
