Nauru and Solomons sign air deal

8:11 pm on 13 September 2006

Nauru and Solomon Islands have signed a new air services arrangement for travel between and beyond Nauru and the Solomons.

Nauru last month relaunched its airline, which now operates under the name Our Airline.

Nauru's minister for transport, Dr Kieren Keke, says there are benefits that can be delivered by a collaborative approach by island nations to aviation matters.

In a statement, Our Airline, which connects Brisbane with Nauru, Tarawa and Majuro, will shortly announce what services it will provide through Honiara.
