Solomon Airlines brings back weekend flights in time for Christmas and New Year

Posted on December 02, 2020 at 04:00 PM in Schedule Updates

  • New weekly Domestic Schedule effective from 13 December 2020

Solomon Airlines today announced the reintroduction of weekend flights and Saturday open hours at their Point Cruz Sales Office starting this week, in preparation for the festive season. 

Colin Sigimanu Commercial Manager for Solomon Airlines said the new schedule and opening hours will provide greater choices and travel flexibility in the upcoming peak period of Christmas and New Year.

“Demand for domestic travel is steadily building, and while international borders remain closed, we want to encourage travel in the Solomon Islands, especially for families who can now take advantage of increased travel options and the fantastic Xmas and New Year package deals being offered by many tourism operators. 

“The reintroduction of weekend services will also accommodate demand for short stay, weekend getaways over the festive season,” he said.
