The national flag carrier's Chief Executive Derek Nice, made the announcement while meeting with Prime Minister Charlot Salwai and other government ministers.

The Vanuatu Daily Post newspaper said subject to regulatory approval, the new service will be code-shared with Qantas.

This week Mr Nice also confirmed plans to increase the airline's international fleet to eight and add five smaller aircraft to the domestic service.
