Fiji's Pacific Sun has signed an agreement to lease two de Havilland Canada Twin Otters, with the first to enter into service on 1 June.

The 300 series Twin Otters will replace two 100 series Twin Otters, said Dave Pflieger, the CEO and managing director of Pacific Sun's parent Air Pacific.

The new aircraft will allow Pacific Sun to renew its fleet and restore its domestic flight schedule back to pre-January 2011 levels, said the airline.

"Once this aircraft begins serving our domestic routes in early June, Pacific Sun expects to be able to restore reliability to its network schedule and we plan to revert to three daily flights from Nadi and Suva to our key tourist destinations of Savusavu, Taveuni and Kadavu," said Pacific Sun's general manager Shaenaz Voss.

The second Twin otter will join the airline's fleet in late June, she added.
