Fiji Airways has announced that it will be increasing its U.S. service after having a record-breaking year of profit in 2016.
In the past year it started its first direct flights to and from Los Angeles, and now the year-round service will be expanded to San Francisco as well.
Andre Viljoen, the Fiji Airways Managing Director & CEO released a statement about the growth.
“This is a fantastic result, as we record another year of growth in reported profit. This strong performance is a true testament to the tremendous work done by our team, responding strongly to the challenges we faced. Last year was full of milestones achieved, culminating in the largest profit the airline has ever recorded.
“To achieve these results is nothing short of outstanding – in a year when we had the most devastating cyclone in our nation’s history to slow down tourism and the launch of three new international routes.”
