Solomon Airlines domestic schedule for Honiara curfew


Posted on December 03, 2021 at 07:30 AM in Schedule Updates


Solomon Airlines has announced the details of a revised domestic schedule for flights operating during the peak holiday period from 6 December to 16 January 2022.

The airline has introduced widespread changes to flight times through December to mid-January, in response to the nightly curfew in Honiara.  The new schedule is now live on Solomon Airlines website.

“As it isn’t clear how long the curfew will be in place, we needed to plan accordingly to ensure certainty for the travelling public,” said Colin Sigimanu Manager Commercial for Solomon Airlines.

“We have had to make considerable adjustments to the timings of most flights to ensure that we can adhere to the curfew between 7pm-6am, and also allow adequate time for returning passengers to travel to their homes in Honiara,” he said.

The new schedule includes a review of flights to 22 Solomon Airlines domestic destinations.

“We have based this schedule as closely as possible to our previous operations with the necessary timing adjustments to accommodate the curfew requirements,” Mr Sigimanu said.

“We will also do our best to contact any affected passengers with their new flight timings using the contact details that we have been provided.

“This is why it is always very important that all travellers provide Solomon Airlines with a mobile number contact so that we can easily reach them in case of any flight changes,” he added.

Solomon Airlines said any passengers who are currently booked to travel, are welcome to contact the airline’s Reservations team to reconfirm their flight check-in time under the new schedule.

Solomon Airlines’ Reservations team can be contacted on 177 (local call) or by emailing [email protected]
