Melanesian Airlines Agreement
The Melanesian airlines of PNG, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu have signed a partnership agreement which is now in force.
Under the Memorandum of Understanding the three airlines will share promotion and sales and introduce a codeshare arrangement on a PNG to Vanuatu route, via Solomon Islands.
Solomon Airlines commercial services manager Gus Kraus told Koroi Hawkins that the partnership is just the beginning and hopefully will expand to include other Melanesian carriers in Fiji and New Caledonia in the future. He said that it links PNG and Vanuatu, making it easier to travel between these countries and further afield.
