Three Pacific airlines have agreed to work together with the signing of a code share agreement.

Air Niugini, Air Vanuatu and Solomon Airlines have entered into the deal for the Port Moresby/Honiara/Port Vila route, which they hope to start in June.

Under this agreement, Air Vanuatu and Solomon Airlines will be using Air Niugini's Fokker 100 aircraft.

A joint statement from the airlines indicates the initial code share will form the basis of further co-operation.
