Solomon Airlines returns to Parasi

AFTER an approximate 10-year absence Solomon Airlines will recommence scheduled air services to Parasi Airport in South Malaita from June 8, 2018.

The national carrier’s decision follows the recommissioning of the airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of Solomon Islands (CAASI).

The new service will operate between Honiara and Parasi every Monday and Friday.

Announcing the development, Solomon Airlines manager commercial, Colin Sigimanu acknowledged the efforts the Solomon Islands government, the Malaita Provincial Government and local landowners have gone to in ensuring the return of what he described as “a much-needed air service between Honiara and Parasi.”

Mr Sigimanu advised the airline has appointed a Parasi-based airport agent to manage all aspects of the airline’s local operation.

“We see this as a huge opportunity to open up the South Malaita region to increased business and commercial opportunity as well as to the benefits of tourism,” Sigimanu said.

“It goes without saying we are very excited with this long-awaited development.”

For further information, visit or contact the airline on its dedicated toll free 177 telephone number or the sales office on 20152 or 20031.
