Ongoing complaints from travellers about disrupted Pacific Sun flights from Suva to Nadi flights, and Savusavu, Labasa and Taveuni have finally got an answer from management.
Fiji Village has today buttonholed the airline's general manager Shaenaz Voss who blamed the disruptions on 'bad weather.'
Voss reckons the Twin Otters for the country's only domestic airline have now been 'equipped with weather radars and GPS’s which will now allow domestic flights to be on schedule despite bad weather.'
She says the $300,000 upgrade will allow Pacific Sun to operate two flights daily into Savusavu from either Nadi or Suva, twice a day flights from Nadi to Taveuni and a daily Nadi to Kadavu flight.
Coupfourpointfive has meanwhile been told four senior executives (one general manager and three executive general managers) from Air Pacific have been forced to leave the company since the start of the year 'due to continuous conflicts' with the regime favourite, CEO David Pflieger.
Two of the four senior managers have been named to us as the GM Finance/Chief Financial Officer - Nick Cain and the GM Commercial/Chief Commercial Officer - Josef Loew.
The other two were unnamed but are believed to be the Chief Pilot and the General Manager Operations.
Insiders say Air Pacifc continues to favour contract staff ahead of local employees.
They say Pacific Sun is also operating under a cloud as costs for charters continue to rise and imminent departure of more staff to other better paying companies.
