V Australia applies to launch Fiji services

V Australia has applied to the International Air Services Commission (IASC) to operate services to Fiji from Dec-2009, requesting an allocation of 1,267 seats per week (The Australian, 14-Aug-09). The Virgin Blue Group also plans to transfer an additional 1,260 seats from Pacific Blue to V Australia for the service. IASC has requested other carriers interested in the capacity to provide an application by 27-Aug-09. The Commission has also allowed Pacific Blue to transfer 720 seats per week on Indonesian services to Pacific services, provided the carrier utilises the capacity by 01-Apr-2010.
