Fijians can be proud of their national airline and confident of its world renowned customer service.
That was the assurance by Air Pacific’s Managing Director David Pflieger with the selection of Global business, ‘Rolls-Royce’ Trent 700 engine to power its three new Airbus A330-200 aircrafts.
Air Pacific had announced last year the order of three brand new Airbus A Three Zero- 200s which will begin arriving in March 2013 and will be operated on flights to Fiji from Sydney, Auckland, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
Pflieger said the trent engine is the only engine specifically designed for the A330 adding the two market leading innovators with superior safety service, operational and environmental performance track records will be ideal partners.
The agreement with Rolls Royce which also includes long term support services is valued at FS370 million Fijian dollars said Fast Talking High Flying Dave.
But International uncensored media say the cost is UK Pounds £210 million which is over F$600 Million Dollars

Time after time political expediency deals a terrible blow to the less fortunate. Here we have a fast talking airline management that has persuaded government that it is a good idea for a pension fund to lend money to an airline! Airlines don’t make money in any consistant fashion. Look round the world and see the losses. The member’s funds should never have been treated in this way!
