The carrier said the destinations have been withdrawn because of low passenger numbers, making the flights commercially non-viable.

It said ceasing the Honiara stop will create a quicker, direct service between Nauru and Brisbane.

The airline said it'll add flights from Nauru to Majuro, a destination that's been growing in popularity.
