Fiji's national airline, Air Pacific, has begun flying to its 17th international destination - Christmas Island in Kiribati.

The service operates a once-weekly Boeing 737-700 aircraft from Nadi to Christmas Island and then Honolulu and returning by the same route.

It is a joint venture between the Kiribati government and Air Pacific to provide essential transport and communications as well as import and export opportunities for residents of Christmas Island.
