Air Pacific has signed a codeshare agreement with American Airlines. Pending US government approval, expected within the next 30 to 60 days, American will place its code on the Fijian national carrier’s flights on the Los Angeles-Nadi, Honolulu-Nadi and Nadi-Suva routes, while Air Pacific will place its code on American’s routes connecting to nearly 20 US destinations from Los Angeles.
“This new codeshare relationship will give our customers seamless connecting opportunities to new destinations in the South Pacific,” said Kenji Hashimoto, American’s Vice President – Strategic Alliances. “We look forward to working with our latest partner, Air Pacific, in providing even more travel options for all of our customers.”
“Air Pacific is delighted to join forces with American Airlines to offer our customers a world-class gateway to nearly 20 American cities. This codeshare relationship will bring new and returning travellers to the idyllic islands of Fiji, one of the most pristine and popular vacation destinations in the South Pacific,” said David Pflieger, Air Pacific’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, adding that the deal was a “win-win” situation for the two airlines.
