Solomon Airlines A320 To Undergo Annual Maintenance

Posted on March 09, 2015 at 10:28 AM in General News

Solomon Airlines has advised that its flagship Airbus A320 will be undergoing scheduled annual maintenance in Manila, Philippines, from 10-29 March 2015.

In the interim period, the carrier will operate a chartered Nauru Airlines Boeing B737-300 on its four weekly Honiara-Brisbane services and weekly services to Port Vila, Vanuatu, and Nadi, Fiji.

Solomon Airlines’ General Manager of Operations & Commercial, Gus Kraus said the scheduled maintenance program was standard for the A320 and in complete keeping with the carrier’s extremely high standards of safety and the Airbus schedule of maintenance that encompasses all aircraft whether they be one type or another.

“The Nauru Airlines’ B737-300’s configuration is slightly smaller than our Airbus A320 but is more than adequate to cater to our requirements across the period of maintenance,” Mr Kraus said.

“Luckily for us, Nauru Airlines has made one of its aircraft available as in keeping with these planned maintenance programs, we have previously sought other operators to assist but most are unable or some have been too expensive or not capable of meeting our scheduled requirements.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this situation may have for our passengers but look forward to maintaining our schedule to our clients and the country with this leased-in aircraft.”

Mr Kraus advised all passengers seeking updated information should visit Solomon Airlines website located at www.flysolomons.com or via the following telephone contacts:

Solomon Islands – telephone toll free on 177 or via the airline’s sales offices, telephone 20152/20031.

International - telephone + 677 36077
