Air Pacific is expected to postpone its twice-a-week flight to Tarawa from Nadi due to a closed runway.
Air Pacific's Managing Director and CEO John Campbell said urgent runway maintenance has affected operation into Tarawa airport and therefore regrets that flights between Nadi and Tarawa have been cancelled to and including today.
Campbell said they are working closely with the Kiribati officials to determine when the airport will re-open. Air Pacific is aware that airport authorities in Tarawa are keen to repair the runway and flights will resume once engineers have given final clearance.
Meanwhile if clearance is given by close of business on today, a special flight will operate tomorrow.
Air Pacific offers two flights a week on its Boeing 737, departing Nadi on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
