On the Street: Viking signs deal with Fiji Airways

Viking Air has inked a deal with Fiji Airways to sell three Twin Otter Series 400 aircraft to be used as a regional commuter service around the island nation.

The deal also includes an option for an additional aircraft. Viking intends to deliver the aircraft between October and February. They join Fiji Airways’ existing fleet of three legacy Twin Otter aircraft. “The Twin Otter remains the aircraft of choice for our subsidiary Fiji Link’s operations to most of Fiji’s smaller airports,” said Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways managing director. “The Series 400 is a definite step up for our expanded Twin Otter fleet, and will allow us to increase capacity to key Fijian destinations.” Each aircraft carries 19 passengers.
