<p style="text-align: justify;">Fiji flag carrier Air Pacific will get new Airbus A330-200 aircrafts in place of the new Dreamliner B787 planes that it had earlier ordered and subsequently cancelled.<!--more--></p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">This is not the first time that a 767 is entering the airline’s fleet. It has had a long serving aircraft named Island of Taveuni, which has flown for over 18 years and which will be farewelled.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">The airline’s CEO David Pflieger said that the airline had decided to buy new rather than used aircraft from other companies. The first of the three Airbus A330-200s will arrive in March 2013, followed by another in May 2013, and finally a third in November 2013.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">From owning one of the most aged fleets in the industry, Air Pacific will go to having one of the youngest fleets when the three aircraft join service.</p>
