Fijian carrier Air Pacific has rolled out the first of the new Airbus A330s that will carry forward the airline’s re-branding as Fiji Airways.

The aircraft, featuring a livery designed around traditional Fijian symbols, will begin commercial services on April 2, two months ahead of the airline’s planned relaunch.

The Airbus A330-200s sport a livery based on traditional Fijian designs.

Air Pacific/Fiji Airways has ordered three A330-200s to replace older 747s and 767s.

“We are determined to become the airline of choice in the South Pacific. Our distinctive livery conveys the warmth and hospitality of our home,” said Dave Pflieger, Air Pacific’s managing director and CEO. “Our passengers will experience superior comfort with our state of the art cabin products once we start commercial operations with the A330 in April, with even better features and products to be rolled out once we become ‘Fiji Airways’ in June.”
