Suspension of all services by Solomon Airlines


Posted on June 08, 2016 at 12:09 PM in General News


Honiara, Solomon Islands – Solomon Airlines CEO, Captain Ron Sumsum has announced all services operated by the national carrier were suspended effective from 08.00 am (Honiara time) today, Tuesday, 07 June 2016.

The decision has had immediate impact on the airline’s eight weekly services between Brisbane and Honiara, flights to and from Nadi, Fiji and Port Vila, Vanuatu, and all domestic services within the Solomon Islands.

In a statement delivered to codeshare partners and other international carriers operating into Henderson International Airport, Captain Sumsum said this decision, due to a dispute with the Solomon Islands’ Government, had not been taken lightly.

“This decision also affects services operated by us to our codeshare partners and services provided to all other airlines in our capacity as ground handling agents.

“I am confident the Solomon Islands’ Government will address the situation in a very short time,” Captain Sumsum said.

Apologising for the disruption to services, Captain Sumsum said he was hopeful the airline would return to full operation as soon as possible.

All enquiries are to be directed to Solomon Airlines CEO, Captain Ron Sumsum.
