There will be no change in Polynesian Airline's code share flights between Fiji and Samoa when Polynesian Blue takes over.

Air Pacific and Polynesian will continue with their twice weekly joint flights.

Air Pacific's manager Samoas, Tuala Thommy Stancil says that there will be no change to the existing service.

Air Pacific uses Boeing 737-800 and 737-700 jets to fly between Nadi and Faleolo.

At the end of the month Polynesian Blue, a joint venture between the Samoa Government and Virgin Blue will take over the international jet services previously operated by Polynesian.

Polynesian will continue its domestic service and regional turbo prop flights such as those to American Samoa.
