Lulutai issues cancellation warning after Fiji Airways’ mechanical issue

Lulutai Airlines said it canceled its two flights scheduled for today Monday 13 due to maintenance issue facing its Fiji Airways’ hired carrier.

“To all our passengers traveling to and from Vavau on the two services today , please be advised that your service was canceled due to mechanical issues in Fiji”, a statement released by the airlines said this afternoon.

It also said the ATR has finally departed Fiji and was on its way to Tonga.

The services are expected to be back on track on Tuesday.

“ATR services tomorrow to Vavau will resume as normal”.

“ Our team is currently working on moving all passengers to tomorrows service and if you have any issues or misconnects to international flights please send details via messenger”.

As Kaniva News reported recently, Fiji Airways is stepping in to help Tonga’s national airline maintain services to Vava’u from February 3, to June 30.

Australia has signed an agreement with Tonga to help the kingdom pay Fiji Airways to run the passenger service seven times a week between Tongatapu and Vava’u.
