Solomon Airlines extends suspension of international flights to July 15

Solomon Airlines has announced it has extended its suspension of international passenger flights to July 15, 2020, the company said.

This action has been taken in consultation with the Solomon Islands Government and is a necessary precaution due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and the resulting current border restrictions.

On March 23, the airline announced international passenger flights would be suspended until May 31.

The airline will continue to remain flexible and available to operate Solomon Islands government-approved cargo and charter flights as needed.

The Solomon Islands Government has also recently confirmed their progress in building in-country COVID-19 capabilities with the expectation that Solomon Airlines will be operating repatriation flights to the Solomon Islands once these are approved.
