Commencing 17 June 201, the new flight will be the only direct service between the two cities, expanding the airline’s offering in Australia and providing greater access to Vanuatu.
With tickets now available to book, Air Vanuatu will operate three direct flights per week from Melbourne with onward connections to 28 destination across Vanuatu.
Derek Nice, Air Vanuatu’s Managing Director and CEO said he is thrilled to be launching the only direct service between Melbourne and Vanuatu.
“The launch of this new route will be particularly exciting for people living in Melbourne who have already discovered the wonders of Vanuatu and can’t wait to come back. They can travel non-stop, on conveniently timed flights, giving them more time in our island paradise” said Mr Nice.
“Subjected to regulatory approval, we are also pleased to add code sharing with Qantas on the new service between Melbourne and Port Vila from 17 June 2019.
Air Vanuatu is also increasing flight to and from Auckland, New Zealand from three to six services a week. Linking Auckland to Port Vila on Mondays, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays.
Air Vanuatu confirmed that during peak session these additional services will provide more flexibility for New Zealanders and increase connecting flight option for long hall travellers.
