The national airline, Fiji Airways, has revealed that it has taken a major cut in hiring overseas pilots.

This has been confirmed by CEO Andre Viljoen.

He says they are considering hiring more local pilots, and that is possible through their Aviation Academy.

Viljoen says they will reduce their pool of foreign pilots by more than half.


“There is a very interesting development with the academy that has made it possible for us, I call it converting and upgrading more Fijians, where we used to have about 80 foreign pilots, we think that when we get to full flight, we will probably only need 25 -30 and no longer 80. ”

He says they will publish once later this week about these significant results.

Viljoen says that when the borders reopen in December, the majority of their pilots and first officers will be local.
