Fiji Airways converts its 'ideal' ATR 72-600 for freight operations
Date:2020-06-12 Readers:
Fiji Airways has converted one ATR 72-600 into a freighter configuration for cargo operations, reports London's Air Cargo News.

The turboprop, operated by regional subsidiary Fiji Link, flew its first freighter flight from the Fijian capital of Nadi to Port Vila, carrying 3.8 ton of cargo including medical supplies.

Fiji Airways stated that the reconfiguration work, which involved the stripping of all passenger seats, was carried out by its engineering subsidiary in Nadi. It adds that it can switch between freight-only and passenger configurations where necessary. 

The airline has planned another freighter service for the week, this time from Nadi to Nuku'alofa in neighbouring Tonga. 

"Our converted ATR freighter service is ideal for Pacific Island countries, given the demand and operating conditions in region," said Fiji Airways CEO Andre Viljoen.
